"Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the values you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memory of your loved ones. I am not afraid."

Interesting point. No idea why cancers of the heart are so rare!

comment The damage of cancer cells
As you can see from the graph, it is not exact, but just a correlation between cell divisions and cancer - many other environmental factors affect cancer risk too, and some tissues may be more exposed than others? What makes you say muscle specifically?

comment Does increased cell turnover cause cancerous mutations?
So is your question "Does increased replication rate lead to a higher likelihood of mutation?"
