One recurring theme last week at the NOF ISO9 in Las Vegas was the need for more public awareness of the epidemic of osteoporosis. Since it is a silent disease until a fracture occurs, it seems to be in the category of "out of sight, out of mind". I want to encourage everyone to do EVERYTHING POSSIBLE to keep your bones strong and balance good so that you don't fall!
The statistics are staggering and the stakes are high! If you are a 50 year old woman, you have a 50% chance of having an osteoporosis-related fracture in your remaining lifetime and men over 50 have a 25% chance.
