Friday 26 May 2006: Number of bones in the human body
On average the adult human body has 206 bones. The number can vary slightly from individual to individual, but the number 206 has been widely accepted ever since it was reported in Gray's Anatomy. At birth a baby has a lot more bones (up to 100 more according to some), as a fair number of them fuse together during growth.
