The stomach is known to contain enough hydrochloric acid to dissolve a razor blade. The cells in the lining of the stomach go through a lot. They exist in a acidic environment, they endure physical abrasion as the stomach churns food and works extremely hard to transport glucose in to the blood stream.

Sperm And Egg
The reproductive systems of men and women are very different, so is the method of renewal of egg and sperm. The female is born with a finite number of eggs – up to 2 million. No more eggs can be produced, and an egg is lost every menstrual cycle. The number may seem like a lot, but radiation, toxins and degeneration can easily damage these eggs. This is exactly why women are encouraged to have babies early to avoid any birth defects.
Men on the other hand can make up to 1500 sperm per second. Having just one testicle does not affect the rate of production too.
