Caption: A bone rotates, revealing it's interior bone structure which fills with red marrow and then yellow fat cells. Bone marrow is a network of soft, connective material that fills the cavities within bones. At birth and in early childhood, all bone marrow is red. But as we age, about half of the body's bone marrow turns to yellow marrow, which is composed of fat cells. It is the red bone marrow inside some of the larger bones in the body that actually produces blood cells, a process known as haematopoiesis.
