Scientists explained what would happen to the body if people had no bones

Bones are crucial when it comes to a person's ability to move and develop. So if people didn't have them at all, they wouldn't be able to survive and would resemble the pile of mucus often depicted in cartoons.

This was reported by healthdigest.com. It has collected data on the human skeleton and researchers' opinions on the important role it plays.

"If you imagine the human body as a house, the skeleton serves as the foundation on which the rest of the building is built. Despite their surprisingly lightweight, the approximately 206 bones that can be found in an adult human body are not weak at all. One of the main functions of our bones is to support us, as well as store fat and minerals, produce blood cells, and maintain a protective barrier around vital organs," the article says.

According to the American National Organization for Rare Diseases (NORD), a person is not born without bones at all. A rare condition known as hypophosphatasia is associated with the weakening of bones due to a genetic defect in their ability to mineralize. The disorder often occurs in childhood, and such people are prone to fractures and may experience tooth loss.

In contrast, if people lost their bones altogether, they would be left without their main source of calcium, an important mineral that not only helps maintain a strong and healthy skeleton but also facilitates neural communication between the body and brain.

Moreover, according to the US National Institute of Health, without bones, people would become completely immobile. In addition to not being able to physically move, they would also be unable to meet some of their basic survival needs, such as breathing and eating.

No bones means no chest, which makes it impossible for the lungs to expand when you breathe in. If a person needs help breathing through a ventilator, their airways will be wide open to infection and disease. In addition to help with breathing, they will also need help with feeding as they will not be able to chew without jawbones.

People will also have insufficient protection for their most important organs, such as the brain, making them vulnerable to life-threatening injuries. Overall, humanity's chances of survival would be greatly reduced without the support of bones.

"So, what would we look like in the end? According to the BYJU'S educational platform, people will look like a puddle of jelly," the researchers concluded.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, many conspiracy theories about the giants-ancestors of modern people are spreading on the Internet, citing the facts of finding thousands of giant human skeletons around the world. However, one law of mathematics explains whether giant humans could have existed on Earth.
