The human skeleton has 206 bones, which begin to develop before birth. When the skeleton first forms, it is made of flexible cartilage, but within a few weeks it begins the process of ossification. Ossification is when the cartilage is replaced by hard deposits of calcium phosphate and stretchy collagen, the two main components of bone. It takes about 20 years for this process to be completed.
Additionally, the bones of kids and young teens contain "growing zones" called growth plates. These plates consist of columns of multiplying cartilage cells that grow in length and then change into hard bone. The growth plates are located at the ends of the bones in children.
Because kids' bones are relatively soft and flexible, they tend to absorb shock better than adult bones. However, with enough force, they can still break.
Fortunately, kids' bones are also natural healers. At the location of the fracture, the bones themselves will produce new cells and tiny blood vessels to help close up the break until it's almost as good as new. This repairing process is especially speedy in kids.
Your body is constantly tearing down andbuildingbone. In adults, it takes somewhere between 10 to 20 years to replace all the calcium in your bones that make up your skeleton. That is why it is important to have a good diet, one high in green leafy vegetables, and you should also get plenty of exercise. Both of these will help keep your bones healthy, because it will help you build as much bone as you loose.
On Madison Avenue, childhood is carefree, adolescence equals angst and middle age is synonymous with emotional upheaval -- and a passion for sports cars.
But researchers who study the unfolding course of human lives have learned to distrust such popular stereotypes. The reality of development across the life span, they find, is almost always more complicated, less romantic and far more interesting than any portrayal offered up by the world of advertising. Certainly this is true of the portrait of middle age emerging from a 10-year study of nearly 8,000 Americans by the MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Successful Midlife Development, which released the first in a series of reports on its findings today.
Far from being a time of turmoil, for most people the midlife years appear to be a time of psychic equanimity, good health, productive activity and community involvement, the MacArthur researchers found. ''On balance, the sense we all have is that midlife is the best place to be,'' said Dr. Orville Gilbert Brim, director of the network, which is made up of researchers from many different academic disciplines.
What all this means is growth and development are a cooperative venture between ourselves and our bodies, and it is on-going for most of human existence. We should be more busy about developing our bodies past the age of 50, and less concerned about retirement and planning funerals. From a marketing standpoint it is a scary truth for industries that are used to capitalizing on agism, which has been systematically taught in our halls of education and piped through our media. The end result is a scary proposition for you;...death at 80 when you are finally an adult. Yes, you heard it. All those that buy into the spell of agism, will become washed out, burnt out young adults by the time they are 80 years of age. Find out the precise timing of your body's regenerative cycles. All of your body's organs have regenerative cycles that can span in increments as long as 20 years. We are to pay special attention to these scheduled biological maintenances, and supply the body with the necessary materials and training it needs. All our lives we have been taught that our bodies are degenerative. Is it any wonder our nursing homes are packed with people expecting a peaceful transition from natural causes only to come to the realization that that plantation was fairy-tale. That transition is High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Alzheimer's, Arthritis, Heart Disease, Dementia, Cancer, Osteoporosis, and the list goes on and on. There are no natural causes to someone dying just after their prime of life, But the corporate conglomerate has hood-winked us into consuming goods and subscribing to doctrine that are killing us on our feet as we speak, so the countries economy does not have to sustain us much past the time we produce a next generation of consumers, because sustaining us past 80 would mean investing the capital gained into real independent ventures that are tangent to the elite's objectives.
You are here. This is YOUR life. Live it for you. Don't let them bury you in your youth.
