From about the age of 60 onwards, the balance existing between osteoblastic and osteoclastic activities in younger life is consdierably disturbed at the expense of the former, Consequently, the balance between the formation and the resporption of the organic substance of bone also ceases to exist, and so does the so-called remodeling.
