A study conducted by the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASMBR) measured the bone density of athletes, showing that BMD is higher across all sports, particularly weightlifting, gymnastics, and soccer. These athletes' legs, hips, spines, and arms demonstrated bone density that was on average 13% higher than non-athletes. Read more about it here
Does this mean we all have to become bodybuilders and Olympians? Fortunately, no! But this data offers compelling evidence that both aerobic and anaerobic exercise can make a difference in increasing bone health.

Osteoporosis: You can prevent it
June 2, 1999 Web posted at: 11:49 AM EDT (1549 GMT) In this story: Taking measures RELATEDS By Deborah Messecar (WebMD) Osteoporosis is a very common bone disease that affects older women and men. It causes a reduction in bone density that allows the bone to fracture under minimal stress. Osteoporosis is categorized as either Type I (postmenopausal) or Type II (senile osteoporosis). Type I osteoporosis primarily affects women between the ages of 55 and 75. With this type, fractures of the vertebrae and wrists are the most common. With Type II osteoporosis, both women and men are equally affected, usually between the ages of 70 and 80, and fractures of the vertebrae, hip and long bones (such as those of the arms and legs) are common. Unfortunately, in many ways osteoporosis is a silent disease and usually shows no symptoms until a complication develops, such as a fractured bone or collapsed vertebrae. People with osteoporosis may develop a kyphotic hump (hunchback), or reduced height and decreased spinal movement as later signs of the disease. Back pain may become severe as nerve roots are compressed.

Study: Doctors failing to test for osteoporosis
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Doctors are failing to test women who suffer wrist fractures for osteoporosis, even though treatment often proves effective and the same women face a greater risk of more serious bone fractures, new research says. The study of 1,162 women over age 54 who suffered wrist fractures found that only 33 patients underwent a bone density scan to detect the presence of osteoporosis and only 266 were treated with medication for the disease. Those women are nearly twice as likely to have hip fractures.

    38. About Osteoporosis
    osteoporosis is a bone disease in which the amount of bone is decreased and the A committee of the World Health Organization has defined osteoporosis
      Osteoporosis is a bone disease in which the amount of bone is decreased and the structural integrity of trabecular bone is impaired. Cortical bone becomes more porous and thinner. This makes the bone weaker and more likely to fracture. A committee of the World Health Organization has defined osteoporosis based on the bone density. Using standardized bone density measurements of the total hip, "normal" bone is greater than 833 mg/cm . "Osteopenia" is between 833 and 648mg/cm . Osteoporosis is lower than 648mg/cm , and "Severe (established) osteoporosis" is when there has been a fragility fracture. Details are explained in the bone density section.
