Although cells grow quickly, wounds heal slowly by comparison, and some scientists say the laws of physics explain why. Wounds require so many new cells to heal that they act like "energy sinks," and a limited amount of energy is available in the human body. The scientists calculated how much energy the body needs to move resources to a wound and created a model to predict healing time.
