Despite myriads of prescription drugs that purport to keep bones strong and over 60 years of heavy promotion of milk and other supposed foods for your bones one in every two American women over 50 now show the beginnings of osteoporosis or bone weakening. By age 80, three-quarters of all American women have osteoporosis. That means their bones are no longer strong enough to support the weight of the moving body. If anyone tells you this loss of bone is inevitable - don't believe them. This book covers the scientific evidence showing that you can have strong bones for life. Published 2008. pp 160.
