Bones is Important

Not exactly sure why this isn’t making local news (since the study was carried out here), but this is interesting:

A child with leaner body mass or muscle, builds bigger bones compared to one who weighs the same but has a greater percentage of fat, says the latest research.

“We were interested in the relative influence of lean mass, which is muscle, versus fat mass on how bone grows as kids grow,” said Howard Wey, professor at South Dakota State University (SDSU).
