It's a fact. At least twenty-five million Americans have osteoporosis and another thirty-four million people have bone density low enough to be at risk of fractures. What you ate as a young woman and what you eat now, and how often you exercise and the kind of exercise you do, can contribute to these conditions appearing later in life. Are you getting enough calcium from dairy and nondairy foods? Should you stop drinking coffee and soda? How much calcium should you take every day, and when? Should you start hormone replacement therapy to protect against osteoporosis? The advice you get on these and ther vital questions is confusing and often conflicting. 'The bone density diet' cuts through the noise of contradictions, information, myths, and outdated assumptions to give you the first complete, scientifically sound, preventive and restorative program for sturdy, resillient bones - guaranteed to make you feel younger, healthier and more vital.
