...but not for eating - for putting directly into your bones! "A material made from the vegetarian food tofu could help repair broken bones and teeth, UK scientists believe." The BBC goes on to explain that "the de-fatted soybean curd would act like polyfiller to fill in defects. It has the added advantage of encouraging new bone to grow as it biodegrades and releases natural anti-inflammatory agents" while in contrast: "Many existing materials used to fill bone are derived from animal sources, which the patient's immune system can react to and reject as foreign material." Hmmmmmm. Score another one for plant-based healing.
