Abstract

From the time we are born till when we reach adulthood (and even after that), we continue to grow – our body becomes bigger and stronger. But did you know that you actually have fewer bones as an adult compared to when you were born? Yes, at birth you have 300 bones, but end up with only 206 bones as an adult! Fear not, you have not lost these bones; they have simply fused (joined-up) with each other
