May Is Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month

Did you know that one in every two women and one in every four men over the age of 50 will experience a fracture related to osteoporosis in their lifetime?

That is a scary statistic for all of us. 

But there is a source to get helpful information, tips and health/fitness news that will inform you about osteoporosis, the symptoms, the treatments available and prevention tips.  You can check out the American Recall Center for that information. Their mission is to raise awareness about osteoporosis and help people prevent it as much as possible. Here is a helpful infograph that they have prepared: 

You can see in the infograph that there are ways to help prevent the onset of osteoporosis.  Be sure to eat and drink foods rich with calcium and vitamin D.  Stay active to help strengthen your bones. 

We are all going to experience difficulties as we age but why increase your chances of osteoporosis?  Get out there and move to stay active and drink your milk!!
