  title={Changes in Structure of Human Bone with Age},
  author={Somnath Chatterji and J. W. Jeffery},
THE pliability of human bone decreases with increasing age, and the incidence of bone fracture increases after about 35 years of age. These changes indicate that some structural changes occur in bone over a lifetime. Much work has been done on the correlation between the histological components of bone and its physical properties, and their variation with age, but contradictory conclusions have been drawn1,2. No attempt seems to have been made to correlate the physical properties of bone with… CONTINUE READING
