MCG researchers study hormone that may prevent bone being lost in space
...n bone. The balance of bone loss and production is uncoupled
by weightlessness and by hormonal loss that occurs with age, Dr. Isales said. "You can break down bone, but you don't form it as well," without the natural force of gravity. Bone loss and production are constants in life, with the average person refo...
