Chinese eat dinosaur ‘dragon bones’ – Focus on China – MSNBC.com
Villagers in central China spent decades digging up bones they believed belonged to flying dragons and using them in traditional medicines. Turns out the bones belonged to dinosaurs, and now scientists are doing the digging.
Until last year, the fossils were being sold in Henan province as â..dragon bonesâ. at about 25 cents a pound, scientist Dong Zhiming said Wednesday.
The calcium-rich bones were sometimes boiled with other ingredients and fed to children to treat dizziness and leg cramps. Other times they were ground up and turned into a paste applied directly to fractures and other injuries, he said.
