We all know that our bodies are made of cells of course, but no one actually sat down and count each and every one to see exactly how many go into making a person so we have to make estimates based on the size and distribution of the different types of cells, and the mass of an adult human body (in this case, the adult male body). These estimates lead us to conclude that, each of us has around one hundred trillion cells that make up
their body.
However, not all of those cells are what you might call, 'human' cells (i.e. cells that contain your own genetic material). About 40 trillion of your body cells (comprising almost 50% of your body's cell count) are bacterial cells that live in your digestive system, primarily in your large intestine. However, these bacterial cells are much smaller than the cells that make up your body, so more of them can fit in a small space.
Of the remaining ~50% of your body's cell count, only about 10% make up the solid tissues that we think of when we ...more

Keep in mind, all of these figures are just estimate

When I counted last time it was 2 billion 10 lakhs 56 thousand 816.

But since then many cells have died after reading your question :)
