syrynxx: The carbon in our bodies does not come from dying stars - sorry, Carl Sagan and whoever this AW is. Stars have the luxury of inefficiency, and operate on a multi-stage fusion cycle in which carbon is a catalyst. It is necessary, but the amount of carbon required is equal to the amount of carbon produced. Humans have to settle for the lowest-hanging fruit, which is the dirty Deuterium-Tritium fusion reaction.Everything post-Fe26 and much before that, can safely be said to be the product of gravitational collapse promoting less-efficient exothermic fusion or even endothermic fusion. But not carbon.
