The human body is made of billions upon billions of cells, which indicates how small they are. Most cells can be seen ony with a microscope. All cells have three main parts: the cell membrane, the cytoplasm, and the nucleus. The cell membrane is the outside surface of the cell. Inside the membrane is the cytoplasm. This is a mass of grayish material which holds many other tiny cell parts. Near the center of the cell is the nucleus. It controls the nature of the cell. There are many kinds of cells, and usually each kind does one special job. For example, some cells expand and contract; these are muscle cells. Other cells are sensitive to light; they form the retina of the eye. Other cells may produce and give off material of some sort; they are known as secretory cells. Cells contain many com- pi dated structures and there is constant activity going on, in them. Food and oxygen pass steadily into the cell through the membrane. The cell changes them to energy. It uses cell material — more living matter. A single cell does not live very long — it ages and dies. But cells also have the ability to divide and become two new cells. So if the cell divides, instead of aging and dying, the old cell becomes two new cells. And both new cells are exactly like the original cell. When cell division slows up, the body begins to age.
