What is it?

Osteoporosis is caused from a lack of dairy foods. It is a disease that occurs in the bones causing them to lose their strength and density. Osteoporosis causes the bones to become fragile, weak and brittle meaning they can fracture/break a lot easier. This deficiency particularly affects women after menopause.
