Why Is Bone Considered a Living Tissue?

Answer

Bone is considered a living tissue because it is actually made up of living tissue. Despite the idea that bone is simply a dense structure of the human body that serves as a support beam, bone is actually made up of several different layers of living tissue. Within these various layers of tissue are different cells that function to form bone marrow, create bone tissue, produce red blood cells, and assist in keeping the tissue of bone alive. These cells are known as osteoblast, osteocyte, osteoclast, and hematopoeitic.
