Apotosis is a programmed cell death. Organs are organized by multi cells, The number of cells in the organ community is tightly regulated by the equilibrium between cell production and cell death. Whenever the cells are no longer needed or they prone to any damage, they themselves commit suicide by activating their death intracellularly. During the process they form phagocytic cells that can engulf the dead contents of the cell before they spread to the surrounding cells and prevent their damage.
