    is the sum of all the chemical process that occurs in the body
  2. includes motion of the whole body, individual organs single cell, and even tiny structures inside cells
  3. is an increased in body size that results from an increase in the size of existing cells or increase in number of cells or both
  4. is the development of a cell from unspecialized to a specialized state
            (such precursor cells which can divided and give rise to cells that undergo differentiation are know as stem cells)
  5. refers either to the formation of new cells for tissue growth repair or replacement or the production of a new individual
