  1. I guess I have a couple questions in one with this post. I just started an online course on anatomy tonight and upon bringing up the composition of bone the teacher made sure everyone knew that collagen fiber & crystalyzed mineral salts were organic material & inorganic material. The given values of composition were 15% water, 30 percent collagen, and 55% min. salt. How does the nonpolar fiber bind with the water and salt (or what I should look into to expand my understanding). My first thought is that the water and salt bond to make a nonpolar compound(?), that then binds with the collagen. On to the actual post question: I was thinking about how water seems to be kind of a good bonding agent in cooking (and the body?), but also when acidic it is a good conductor, and the specific heat thing is really good for temperature regulation, and it's also really good for pressurization (in conjunction with the lungs?). I'm curious what everyone's opinions on the hierarchy of water's functions in the body are, and why you think that. The substance is pretty multifaceted, I know
