Your stomach cells are exposed to the harsh stomach acids, if they were not replaced as rapidly as they are the stomach acid would not be able to be contained thus digesting itself and exposing the rest of your body to the acid.

As for the red blood cells our body can only replace about 1% of them per day, essentially there are around 20-30 trillion red blood cells in your body, replacing 200-300 billion cells that are so vital is no easy task. But its easy to assume that only a fraction are replaced every day to use each cell to its fullest life before recycling it.

On a side note every 7 years your a totally new you with 100% new cells.

Why doesn't stomach acid eat through the stomach?

In the stomach there are gastric pits. An individual pit contains surface mucous cells and mucous neck cells, which secrete a coat of mucus and bicarbonate throughout the stomach. The Parietal cells (aka oxyntic cells), which are deeper within the pit, also produce bicarbonate.(parietal cells are also the ones who produce HCl) The bicarbonate is secreted into the blood stream and as the blood vessels carry the bicarbonate away some of it diffuses from the blood vessel into the mucus coat. This mucous coat containing bicarbonate is thus able to protect the inside of the stomach from the HCl. It's just like a lining in the stomach which is replaced every so often More simply put, cells in the stomach secrete mucus and a base, bicarbonate. This mucus coat containing the base is able to neutralize the acid secreted by another group of cells. The stomach contents is acidic, but the acid is neutralized by the mucus if the acid trys to come in contact with the cells of the stomach. violingal is the author=-] add her if read.
