Osteoporosis affects around three million people in the UK, and bone loss can begin as early as the late teens and early 20s. Broken bones due to osteoporosis mean that the disease is at a very advanced stage, and, while doctors can help greatly with modern drugs, some damage is irreversible. But, equally, early attention can prevent osteoporosis getting to this crippling stage, often for decades.
This book looks at the best ways to keep bones young, strong and healthy, with advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle. It also focuses on the latest medical research, including major new studies that challenge the current acceptance of some of today's treatments.
