    I read somewhere that muscle cells stop dividing at adulthood.
    So how do people "build muscle" when they work out? I thought it was from mitosis, but apparently I was wrong?


    Having an opinion doesn't exempt you from being told it's stupid.

    well wherever you read that was wrong

    the only cells that ever stop replicating are your brain cells, all your other cells replicate constantly, otherwise you would be constantly loosing mass,

    your body slows down cell replication when parts are finished growing, otherwise you would continue to grow

    This is the Acadamy of Science! we don't need to 'prove' anything!
