Give some examples of Irregular bones facial vertebrae
Factors that affect bone growth and maintenance are: Heredity, Nutrition (Vitamins A,C, D,calcium), Hormones (growth hormones), Exercise or 'stress'
Rickets bones become softened due to lack of vitamin D. Affects children due to lack of milk and not playing outside.
Exercise for bones is barring weight, which bones are specialized to do
Stress for bones is w/o normal stress bones will loose calcium faster than it's replaced.
