We all know, or most of us do anyway, that a specific titanium alloy is used in medical implants such as hip replacements when a person needs to have hip replacement surgery. The reason that titanium alloy is used in our bodies is that titanium bonds with human bone and never rejects it. Take this a bit further.

What about a whole skeleton made out of titanium alloy? It's not far-fetched if you think about it. we humans can have implants made with the material and never have to worry about our bodies rejecting it. Wouldn't it be cool to slowly have every bone in your body replaced with this material? Expensive yes, but you'd never have a broken bone again. But, we'd have to come up with a way to make new red blood cells since those are made by the bone marrow. If we can get that dilemma figured out, I don't see why we can't have an entire skeleton made out of it. Sure would make us stronger beings.

We'd be able to perhaps dodge bone cancer as well.

Think of the advantages of this.
