||Abstract: "Here, [investigators] integrate the most up-to-date information on the number of human and bacterial cells in the body."
||P.7 bottom paragraph to p.8 top paragraph: "In Fig 2, [investigators] summarize the revised results for the contribution of the different
cell types to the total number of human cells. Categories contributing >0.4% in cell count are presented. All the other categories sum up to about 2% together. [They] find that the body includes only 3×10^12 non-blood human cells, merely 10% of the total updated human cell count. The visualization in Fig 2 highlights that almost 90% of the cells are estimated to be enucleated cells (26×10^12 cells), mostly red blood cells and platelets, while the other ≈10% consist of ≈3×10^12 nucleated cells. The striking dominance of the hematopoietic lineage in the cell count (90% of the total) is counterintuitive given the composition of the body by mass." See note beneath figure
