Help me understand

Hello all,

A theoretical question. It is a common knowledge that discs, once they have been formed and stopped to grow (at age of 23-25?), stay that way. Am I wrong?

So how can such a structure keep itself inert for many years without getting fresh nutrients, cell division?

    I had a disc procedure to see how much my discs and bones had deteriorated with osteoporosis - onlhy slightly worse than the English version but they give you a copy of the scan. (both in the UK and Spain)

    On first going into the Spanish system and after the osteoporosis procedure they immediately put me on Vit D which I take twice a day. One tastes like sweet chalk and the other orange juice.

    I expect you can get the same in England or wherever you live - can't see they do much harm
