Turning Fat Into Bone

vibrating mice
Standing on a vibrating platform for 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week is turning fat into bone, at the rate of 27% At least for mice.

Dr. Rubin, director of the Center for Biotechnology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, is careful not to have us jump to any conclusions just yet but he and many others are finding this test done with mice, using no drugs, to be quite interesting

Interesting enough to have the National Institute of Health do a full study with elderly patients.
The mice in question stand on a small platform that buzz’s at a specific frequency, for 15 minutes at a time for 5 days a week. When they get off, they’re 27% less fat and have 27% more bone.

What I’d like to know is, what size of a platform would a human have to use?

Dr. Rubin and his colleagues caution that

it is not known if standing on them strengthens bones in humans. Even if it does, no one knows the right dose. It is possible that even if there is an effect, people might overdose and make their bones worse instead of better

Rob Coopers Fat burning tips In 1990 Rob weighed 475 pounds and was able to burn almost 300 lbs of fat in just two and a half years.

I was an addict to alcohol. I had a nutritionist help me eat well as my nutrition sucked during my addiction. My friends who did not have any problems started to follow the same diet and all started losing weight. It included carbs on a low glycemic index. Protein in the morning and afternoon and healthy carbs at night. A good article on this here: http://www.myaddiction.com/education/articles/nutrition.html

Any thoughts on this? Have you seen any good stuff with this form of diet?
