THE SURGEON GENERAL’S REPORT ON BONE HEALTH
Bone Health and Osteoporosis:
“Americans of all ages must take steps to protect their bone health.”
Why? For starters, the report predicts that by 2020, half of all Americans over age 50 will be at risk for bone fractures.
It went on to detail that hip fractures currently account for 300,000 hospitalizations a year.
The cause? Lack of calcium and vitamin D were identified as contributing factors.
That's because the average American consumes far less calcium than the Surgeon General recommends—and many people aren't getting the recommended amount of vitamin D, further complicating the issue.
What can you do to stay above those statistics?
