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)

To be safe, I go no more than two weeks. If your broth was more acidic (did you add a bunch of vinegar?), you might get four. That's the problem with fresh-made broths: no preservatives leads to a short shelf life. EDIT: I'd never heard of the... (more)

As long as the bone is safe like a knuckle bone and not sharp or too small I think a bone is a good 'teething ring' with great flavour. I'd just monitor the baby while the bone was being chewed.
