FACTS ABOUT THE SKELETAL SYSTEM THAT PROBABLY YOUR SCHOOL BOOKS DIDN’T TELL YOU

The human body is a conjecture of both the bones and the muscles; the bones and the muscles together provide a framework for the functioning and coordination of the body. Even the tiniest of fishes have vertebrae within them; thus, all living organisms that can coordinate and move around and also defend themselves, the credit goes to the skeletal system.

“If the food we are consuming is too much acidic in nature, which the stomach is not able to resist, the calcium from the bones will be pulled down to the stomach to make it alkaline, which then gradually results in disintegration or degeneration of the bone calcium” explained an orthopaedic surgeon from Ludhiana.

FUNCTIONS OF THE SKELETAL SYSTEM APART FROM PROVIDING A FRAMEWORK TO THE BODY 

  1. The skeletal system serves as a shield for the delicate organs of the body. For example, the Rib cage protects the lungs and skeletal system, the skull serves as a brain shield, and the pelvic region supports the genitals.
  2. The Bone Marrow present in the bones helps produce Red blood cells, which help transport blood to various organs.
  3. The bones in the skeletal system serve as a conjecture between the muscles and the nerves, thus making it possible to facilitate coordination all over the body.
  4. The bones are a storehouse of minerals that store a lot of minerals like phosphorus and calcium, which are released back into the bloodstream in the time of need to support physiological processes.
  5. The skeletal system facilitates movement from one place to another by lending aid to muscles in the body and thus makes motion and locomotion easy for individuals.

AMAZING FACTS ABOUT THE SKELETAL SYSTEM THAT WAS TILL NOW UNKNOWN 

  1. The human body, as we all know is made up of 206 bones, but the number of bones that a baby is born with is 300 bones. The bones then join in to form larger bones, and some become cartilage which is why the number of bones is less in number in an adult while more in an infant. 
  2. For those who feel bones are the strongest in the body, they are not the strongest in the body the tooth enamel teeth though a part of the skeletal system, are not considered a part of the skeletal system. They are considered just an extension of the skeletal system. 
  3. The first prosthesis developed was the human artificial toe. It was developed by the Egyptians and was used to recover of soldiers who had been wounded in wars. 
  4. Human bone marrow tumours are one of the oldest tumours some physicists believe it is even older than that of the common cold and flu; the oldest abscess or swelling in the bone is believed to be discovered 120,000 yrs ago or 130,000 yrs ago. 
  5. The only bone not connected to any other bone in the body is the hyoid at the base of the tongue, which is why it is free to move around and rotate, which is why we say to use your tongue wisely.
