In CH Turner’s article (CTI 65:466–471, 1999), Toward a Mathematical Description of Bone Biology: The Principle of Cellular Accommodation he claimed that there were many flaws and inconsistencies in the “critical examination of the mechanostat theory. . . .” and offered a better theory. I applaud efforts to improve the still-evolving mechanostat hypothesis [1] or to find a better one, but regretfully all but one of the problems that the article claimed to find in it were spurious. The article’s… CONTINUE READING
