Why someone may have said this to you is that the phytic acid binds with minerals making your body unable to absorb them, so if for example you were eating this with milk and you needed calcium, oats might then hurt your cause then leading to weak... (more)

Bones can be or should be used max to max 2 times, its because we boil it in very high temperature and if we use it for 3-4 times then there is of no use.
