Boning up on bones – WebMD

As much as folks seem to know and care about the fat and the muscles in their body, they remain pretty ignorant about their bones. This is a shame because in the case of the skeleton you don’t know can hurt you.


WebMD has thoughtfully provided a test – Myths and facts about your bones to get you up to speed on the subject.

Herewith are a couple of questions that will hopefully encourage you to click on the link and take the entire test yourself.

Number one:

When do bones stop growing?

a  They don’t

b  Puberty

c  Late 20s

I’m not going to spoil your fun by giving you the correct answer.

Here is another good one:

Bones make red and white blood cells.

a  True

b False

This is the last freebie I will give you:

Which bone gets broken most often?

a Collar bone
b Arm
c Leg

I hope your curiosity is aroused enough to take the test yourself and find out the answers.

Make no bones about it. Remember you bones like your muscles require work. If you don’t feel like lifting weights to strengthen them, at least take a talk. That is weight-bearing exercise. Your bones are organic material, not just hard stuff under your skin.
