All About Bones

Bones Are Not Stone-Like Inanimate Objects. They are fully alive, and Continually Tearing down and renewing.bone

Most people’s knowledge of bones comes from the remains of a meal, or from those that amuse their dogs. They are seen as hard, rock-like, hollow, and inert. They look like they will last hundreds of years. These are dead bones. If they have been outside for a while, all that’s left is the calcium deposits that make it so hard. This is deceiving. A bone is quite complex, and is often considered an organ. Besides providing structural support, it also acts as a mineral depot, and houses the cellular factory that manufactures red and white blood cells. It has an elaborate blood supply and is continually tearing itself down and rebuilding itself.

Researchers Consider Drug Experiment Successful Despite Clear Evidence of Harm

A drug trial evaluating zoledronic acid versus placebo was done on a group of about 200 elderly women in nursing homes.  The hope was that the drug would alleviate osteoporosis.unnamed

Osteoporosis is caused by lack of several minerals, including calcium, in the bones. This causes them to weaken, eventually to the point of not being able to support the weight their owner places on them. At this point, they start to crush in on themselves. This is called the ‘fracture-threshold’. Bones in this state are also much more likely to break in a fall.
