Healing heart attack victims, one cell at a time

April 3, 2009- 
By using the amount of carbon-14 in the atmosphere from above-ground nuclear testing in the 1950s and 1960s, researchers have determined that cells in the human heart develop into adulthood. But as humans age, the percentage of new heart cells decreases markedly. By age 25, renewal of heart cells gradually decrease from 1 percent turning over annually to .45 percent by the age of 75.
