It is called the “silent disease” and most commonly associated with menopausal women.
Women are diagnosed with low bone density or osteoporosis . But, the disease doesn’t only attack women-
one in four men older than 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis.
This is a medical condition in which the bones become brittle and fragile from loss of bone tissue.
Getting enough of vitamin D naturally or by supplement form plus diet will help. Oily fish,
and fortified milk are the way to go.
Weight bearing exercise such as walking, climbing stairs, and jogging will help build and maintain strong
bones and slow bone loss.
