Making bone health a priority by Colin Milner
Aging baby boomers may put their bones at risk if they ignore a recent call to action by the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF). The organization has challenged boomers to take better care of their bones, as research reveals bone health is a significant problem in the United States. NOF prevalence figures estimate 44 million Americans aged 50 and above have low bone mass or osteoporosis. By 2020, this number will climb to an estimated 61 million men and women if bone health does not become a priority.
