This is preamble to the Bio-Replenishment Theory and a comprehensive review of the most happening system in the human body - The Skeleton. This 'Science simplified' version, describes the cumulative effects of genetics, chemistry, and lifestyle on physiological outcomes of the bone - both functional (health) and dysfunctional (disease). Bone is a 'mineral bank', especially, for deposits and withdrawals of calcium - a process essential for the heart to beat, the nerve cell to flash an electric impulse, the muscle to twitch and the bowel to move. Bone (marrow) is a 'blood factory' and also serves a structural function - it sculpts our face; furthermore , provides a protective armor, mechanical levers to move and an ability to hear sound. In fulfilling vital metabolic functions on a steady-state, the entire human skeleton is expended and eventually replaced every 7 years. The refilling of depleted bone mass requires an organized 'internal engineering', supported by regulators, processors, transporters and builders, collectively known as Bio-Replenishments. This reference volume elaborates the critical role of Bio-Replenishment in the day-to-day management of the skeleto-muscular system - the marvelous ensemble of 206 bones and 650 muscles, making up for 70% of the human body.
