Summary

Summary

Challenging traditional assumptions that estrogen and calcium deficiencies are the only causes of osteoporosis, this book explores the disorder from a wider perspective that includes lifestyle and exercise. This newly revised second edition features a personal osteoporosis risk assessment questionnaire and a step-by-step program for strengthening bones and improving overall health and well-being.
