May is National Osteoporosis Month in the United States. After menopause our bone health can change and osteoporosis can break our bones.
In Calcium: Recommended Daily Calcium Intake – Women: 50+ the (Australian) Jean Hailes for Women’s Health elaborate on:
- “When women go through menopause, there is a rapid loss of bone because of decreased oestrogen and this process may last from 4-8 years after menopause”.
Worldwide, one in three women and one in five men over the age of fifty will experience an osteoporotic fracture.
In fact, every three seconds a bone will break, somewhere in the world, because of this disease”.
In Osteoporosis and Arthritis: Two Common But Different Conditions: Osteoporosis the (United States National Institutes of Health) NIH National Osteoporosis and Related Bone Diseases National Resource Center explain:
“A healthy diet, one rich in fruits and vegetables and calcium and vitamin D, as well as weight-bearing and muscle strengthening exercise, are critical elements in building Peak Bone Mass and maintaining bone strength throughout our lives”.
