I have a question. What are a few of the places that mitosis occurs in our bodies all the time?

All cells in our body are capable of mitosis, except the muscular fibre, neuron and the blood cells.

Some of the most rapidly-dividing cells are your skin cells and the cells lining your mouth, stomach, and intestines.

Yes. also don't forget the stem cells in your bone marrow that make blood cells and the stem cells in your brain that make new neurons
