In many ancient medical practices they advocate someone eat the part of the animal that they are having problems with. In your case I guess that would mean you should eat bones according to that POV. Better get chomping.

Will my bone mineral density or bone mineral content or bone size or whatever increase from eating bones? Technique to eat bones: cook as a bone broth until they're edible. Preferably mushed up in the actual broth.

Maybe. If you're coming off a SAD-style diet to a Paleo-style diet, you might well end up with denser bones, but the relationship isn't going to be linear. At some point, your bones will achieve a normal density and then stop getting denser due... (more)

Also, there's plenty of calcium in several green vegetables, in almonds if you eat them and various other places. I load up on the leafy greens anyway, so I don't worry about it myself.

Use your senses. Look at them, smell them. If they're fresh, they won't have much of an odor, you won't see anything fuzzy, or furry on them. If they've been outside for days, avoid. If it's just a few hours and they look ok, enjoy. (more)
