What is the rusting of bones?
The rusting of bones happens to those who take sufficient calcium as well.
One of the reason of the rusting of bones is sugar.
The rusting of bones means that sugar attaches to a bone and a part of the bone changes to bad substance. As a result, the bone becomes fragile and easy to be broken.
50% of our bone is minerals which is hard such as calcium and another 50% is protein which is elastic such as collagen. That is why bones can keep the hardness and absorb shocks bowing when necessary.
If you continue irregularity of dietary life such as eating too much, your blood sugar is kept high. And unused sugar attaches to the collagen of your bones and a part of it changes to bad substance. As a result, your bones becomes hard without flexibility and easy to be broken even if the bone density is sufficient. It is called scarification of bone.
But there is another major cause that makes your bone rusty.
That is active oxygen. Active oxygen has sterilizing effect which protects our body from bacteria and virus, but if it exceeds a certain amount, it hurts our body on the contrary.
For example, if active oxygen damages the skin, it causes age spots and wrinkles. If it damages the wall of blood vessels, it progresses hardening of blood vessels. When active oxygen damages collagen of bone, even if your blood sugar is normal, a lot of sugar attaches to bone making bone easy to be broken.
Why does active oxygen increase too much in our body?
A cluttered lifestyle such as irregular diet and/or lack of exercise causes lifestyle related diseases such as high blood pressure or hyperlipidemia, and it tends to increase active oxygen. It is important to pay attention to your diet such as reducing salt or fat and do some exercises such as walking.
