An Overview of Osteoporosis

You’re never too young or too old to improve the health of your bones. 

Osteoporosis is a medical condition in which the bones become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue. Osteoporosis causes an estimated 2 million deaths a year.

Preventing Osteoporosis should start in your childhood and continue throughout your life. No matter what your age is, the habits that you start now can affect your bone health forever. 

Here are 4 ways to protect your bones to prevent osteoporosis:

  1. Get enough calcium, vitamin D, and eat a well-balanced diet
  2. Engage in regular exercise
  3. Eat foods that are good for bone health, such as fruits and vegetables
  4. Avoid smoking and limit alcohol to 2-3 drinks per week
