Managing your osteoporosis risk

Having strong bones is something most of us take for granted; but as you enter midlife, your risk for developing weaker, more fragile bones increases.

While the best defense against osteoporosis is early prevention, there are still steps you can take now to prevent further bone loss and improve your overall bone health, including eating a calcium-rich diet and participating in weight-bearing exercises.
