Humans are born with 300 bones, but adults only have 206 bones. So what gives? Some of the 300 original bones in a baby are made of regular bone and some are made of a material called cartilage. Cartilage is soft and flexible to start, but over the years the cartilage grows and slowly hardens into bone. Also, some bones fuse together. All of this is part of the normal growth process.

Some time between the ages of 17 and 21, this growth process ends and your bones are as big as they're going to get. And like magic, you end up with 94 fewer bones than you started with.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
