LIVING COMPLETELY WELL: Better Diet, Supplements Could Stem Bone Density Loss By Dr. Cheryl Shea | www.globe-democrat.com
Question: I am worried about osteoporosis as I age. What should I be doing?
Answer: You haven’t mentioned your age, so I’ll answer your question for a range of ages. Osteoporosis is when our bone density drops to 2.5 standard deviations below that of a 35-year-old. You are three times more likely than a 35-year-old to have a fracture. Osteopenia is another term you may have heard and in this range, you have lower bone density and roughly twice the risk of fracture as compared to a 35-year-old. With either comes a risk of fracture, and the most dangerous fracture as we age is of the hip or leg.

I really don’t believe that there is any way any chemist or company could possibly take all of the benefits out of whole fruits and vegetables and wrap them all up in a tiny capsule (I don’t care how many A’s you got in chemistry). Not to mention the fact that our bodies were really designed to absorb vitamins and minerals from food itself, not from some man-made product.
