And now I shall shitify the title of this cool article: Researches found out how to shove chicken periods in broken bones. Why? I don’t know. Hotel? Trivago. On a side note, that could be great for people with glass bones syndrome. Hard to regenerate sectors, like the hip, would benefit the most, I’d guess.

“make use of food waste” ?? why do people kid themselves like this? Any eggshell used for this will come from chickens raised from birth in sterile laboratory cages and the contents of the eggs (food) will be tested for contaminents and then incinerated. The chickens themselves will also be disposed of that way at end of life.
