Bone remodelling

... and stronger than the anterior and posterior aspects. Such a difference has actually been observed (4.1.8). Large cyclic stress causes more resorption than large static stress (4.1.9). Immobilization of humans causes loss of bone and excretion of calcium and phosphorus (4.1.10). Long spaceflights ...
