Doctors could use eggshells to heal or regrow people’s bones and teeth, reveals study

Mixing crushed eggshells with a gel helped bone cells to grow and harden. Eggshells are made up of calcium carbonate, which causes the bone to toughen. They could one day repair bones damaged due to ageing, cancer or injuries

Doctors could use eggshells to heal or regrow people’s bones and teeth, reveals studyEggshells could help broken bones heal or regrow, research suggests. A study found a mixture of crushed eggshells and a type of gel could help rats’ bone cells to regrow faster and harder in a lab experiment.
