Pregnancy causes permanent changes in women’s bones: Study

A new study has suggested that pregnancy causes chronic changes in women’s bones.

Pregnancy causes changes in a woman's bones.

A team of anthropologists found in a study that ancient women who gave birth had lower levels of calcium and phosphorus than women who did not give birth.

According to experts, due to breastfeeding their children, there was also a clear lack of magnesium in the bones of these women. However, according to other studies, calcium and phosphorus deficiency can cause bone weakness.

The
purpose of the results of this study was not to know the health effects of these minerals on health, but to know how bones change according to life events.

Dr. Shera Bailey, an anthropologist at New York University and co-author of the study, said that bone is not a still or dead part of the human structure. They awaken themselves with the organ process on a futuristic basis.

To obtain the results of the study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, the researchers studied the growth rate of mature bones in primate men and women.

To study these bones, the researchers used electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray analysis to look at the chemical compounds of bone tissue samples.

Due to this method, scientists were able to find out the changes in the levels of calcium, phosphorus, oxygen, magnesium, and sodium.
