We need cells to live in the same way that we need bricks to make buildings.

Every part of our body is made of cells, and without them we simply wouldn't exist.

Why do we need cells Cells are the building blocks of our body - each of us is made up of trillions of cells, and each of those has a particular job to do.

Cells have a common structure, and are made up of tiny particles that keep the cell structure functioning.

To find out more about the structure of cells, I'd recommend checking out some of the following websites: cellular biology
Fun facts about cells Cells are fascinating little things, and it can sometimes be hard to imagine that we are made up of trillions of tiny individual ones.

If you think that's interesting, though, here are some even more startling facts about cells:

  • 95% of the cells in our body are actually bacteria
  • Single-celled organisms were the first form of life on earth
  • An ostrich egg's yolk is the largest single cell on the planet
  • Cells commit suicide when they become infected or damaged

I think the reason we need cells to live is because cells make up every part of our body.

Without them, we wouldn't have body parts (like our brain, heart, etc.) making it impossible to live
