Article: Shock-absorbing 'goo' discovered in bones

 Here's a brief article about a recent discovery, that bones have a water-and-chemical-citrate 'goo' substance that seems in between the crystalline matrix of the bone. This is very interesting for a bone-plasticity point of view..  the living bone-matrix is a very alive and changeable thing - as I have blogged about HERE, before. 

See HERE for the mini-article summary. 

And HERE for the scholarly article.
