    Well, I can`t tell a number, as those are varying depending on the cell type. Bone cells and skin cells don`t divide at the same rate! But I do know that our body cells are fully renewed after 10 years, so you just take the total number of cells in a human body and divided it by 10, then by 365 and then by 24 to finally divide by 60, and you will get the average number you are looking for!
