Body of Evidence

Episode 40 hr 37 min

Skeletal System (Part 2)

Bone serves many important functions such as to support our body, protect delicate organs, make blood cells, and maintain critical calcium levels. Under the microscope, bone is one of the body's most beautifully constructed organs. The exquisite design of osteons makes compact bone, pound for pound, as strong as cast iron. Most amazing is the fact that the bones of the adult skeleton are highly dynamic structures that constantly change shape to best meet the loads that are placed on them.
