Researchers at Cambridge University have made a fascinating discovery about bones and bone health. They found that the brittle microscopic crystals that form our bones are both bound together and protected from one another by a viscous goo, making bones flexible and resilient. “A large part of bone mineral – possibly as much as half of it in fact – is made up of this goo.” This explains why we don’t break our hip every time we step off of a curb, and it may explain osteoporosis and other bone conditions.
