Is osteoporosis running your life?
Osteoporosis means "porous bones". It is a condition in which the bones become fragile and weakened, increasing the risk of fractures, especially in the wrist, hip and spine. Any bone can be affected, but the most serious concerns are fractures of the hip and spine.
Drinking and eating low-fat dairy products helps to rebuild fragile and damaged bones.
