Dr Gill Jenkins Dr Rob Hicks Osteoporosis is a condition where the bones - particularly those of the spine, wrist and the hips - become thin and weak and break easily. Often there are no symptoms.
In this article
What causes it? Who is affected? How do I know if I've got it? What happens then? ... Further help Osteoporosis mainly affects women after the age of the menopause, although men can have it too. It can occur in younger people if they have other predisposing factors.
What causes it?
The condition occurs because from around the age of 35 more bone cells are lost than replaced. This causes the bone density to decrease. The first sign is commonly when a minor bump or fall causes a bone fracture. These may result in pain, disability, loss of independence, and death. Osteoporosis may cause people to 'shrink' as they get older. It causes the characteristic 'dowager's hump'.

Osteoporosis Facts and Statistics
The body is constantly at work breaking down and rebuilding the bones. Specialized bone cells called osteoblasts pull calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus from the blood to build bone mass. Even with a healthy diet and regular exercise, at approximately 30 years the body will begin to lose more bone than it forms. Usually there are not any obvious symptoms of osteoporosis until a fracture occurs or a vertebrae collapses causing a loss of height and a hump in the back (dowager's hump). Osteoporosis affects more than 20 million people in the U.S. and causes 1.5 million fractures each year. Two hundred and fifty thousand of those 1.5 million fractures are hip fractures and for 300,000 people (20% of fractures) it leads to death. Of the 1.2 million that do not die, 600,000 (40% of the fractures) will require long term nursing care because of complications.

165. Got Osteoporosis?
Summarizing this study, the Lunar osteoporosis Update (November 1997) To learnmore about dairy foods and osteoporosis, please visit these sites
"The dairy folks, ever since the 1920s, have been enormously successful in cultivating an environment within virtually all segments of our society—from research and education to public relations and politics—to have us believing that cow's milk and its products are manna from heaven. ... Make no mistake about it; the dairy industry has been virtually in total control of any and all public health information that ever rises to the level of public scrutiny."
Dr. T. Colin Campbell Why dairy products won't help
you maintain healthy bones Building strong bones and keeping them that
way is easier than you may have thought. The dairy pushers pay dietitians, doctors, and researchers to endorse dairy products, spending more than $300 million annually, just at the national level, to retain a market for their products. The dairy industry provides free teaching materials to schools and pays sports stars, celebrities, and politicians to push an agenda based on profit, not public health. Dr. Walter Willett, veteran nutrition researcher at the Harvard School of Public Health, says that calcium consumption via dairy-product intake "has become like a religious crusade," overshadowing true preventive measures such as physical exercise. To hear the dairy industry tell it, if you consume three glasses of milk daily, your bones will be stronger and you will be able to rest assured that osteoporosis is not in your future. Not so. After examining all the available nutritional studies and evidence, Dr. John McDougall concludes: "The primary cause of osteoporosis is the high-protein diet most Americans consume today. As one leading researcher in this area said, 'eating a high-protein diet is like pouring acid rain on your bones.'" Remarkably enough, both clinical and population studies show that milk-drinkers tend to have more bone breaks than people who consume milk infrequently or not at all. For the dairy industry to lull unsuspecting women and children into complacency by telling them to be sure to drink more milk so that their bones will be strong may make good business sense, but it does the consumer a grave disservice.

By 2020 half of all Americans over age 50 will be at risk for fractures from osteoporosis and low bone mass, but osteoporosis is for the most part preventable. Weak bones should not be excused as a natural part of getting older; osteoporosis is not a normal part of the aging process. In recent years the medical community has made great strides in understanding the physical, mental and economic effects of osteoporosis. It has come to the forefront as one of the leading diseases threatening the health of people over 50. On October 14, 2004, US Surgeon General Vice Admiral Richard H. Carmona, launched the first-ever Surgeon General's Report on "Bone Health and Osteoporosis." This two year, 400 page, landmark report emphasizes the need for comprehensive, accurate information about bone health, signaling to all Americans that bone health must be considered a national public health priority.
Below we have provided information from the National Osteoporosis Foundation, the leading nonprofit, voluntary health organization in the U.S. dedicated to promoting lifelong bone health. There you will find facts on osteoporosis outlining specific risk factors, treatment options and preventative care.

168. USPSTF Recommendation: Osteoporosis Screening
Recommendation by the US Preventive Services Task Force regarding use of screeningfor osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis Screening
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends that women aged 65 and older be screened routinely for osteoporosis. The USPSTF recommends that routine screening begin at age 60 for women at increased risk for osteoporotic fractures There is good evidence that the risk for osteoporosis and fracture increases with age and other factors; bone density measurements accurately predict the risk for fractures in the short-term; treating asymptomatic women with osteoporosis reduces their risk for fracture. The USPSTF concludes that the benefits of screening and treatment are of at least moderate magnitude for women at increased risk by virtue of age or presence of other risk factors There is insufficient evidence to recommend for or against routine osteoporosis screening in postmenopausal women who are younger than 60 or in women aged 60-64 who are not at increased risk for osteoporotic fractures Return to U.S. Preventive Services Task Force

What is Osteoporosis?
researched and written by the ProjectAWARE group, 2001 Derived from Latin, osteoporosis literally means porous bone, which involves both the mineral (inorganic) and the non-mineral (organic matrix) components of bone. Osteoporosis is a progressive bone disease in which bone tissue is normally mineralized, but the amount of bone is decreased and the structural integrity of trabecular bone is impaired, becoming more brittle. Cortical bone becomes more porous and thinner. While thinner bone itself is not necessarily more prone to breakage, bone that is both thinner and brittle is more prone to fracture. Bone strength reflects the integration of two main features: bone density and bone quality. Bone density is expressed as grams of mineral per area or volume, and in any given individual is determined by peak bone mass and amount of bone loss. Bone quality refers to architecture, turnover, damage accumulation (e.g., microfractures) and mineralization. Osteoporosis is a significant risk factor for fracture, and a distinction between risk factors that affect bone metabolism and risk factors for fracture must be made.

steoporosis, resulting in brittle bones, is a "silent thief" it robs your bones of calcium. There are no early warning signs until the disease results in broken bones. The skeleton becomes weakened and a minor fall can result in a fractured hip or wrist. Bones are not lifeless mineral deposits. Bones are constantly changing. They are dynamic, however, after menopause. They begin to break down. S ome women are at greater risk of developing osteoporosis. These risks include:
  • A family history of osteoporosis
  • Age - the older you are, the greater the risk
  • Race - white and oriental women are at higher risk
  • Small and thin women are at greater risk
  • Smoking increases your risk
  • Little or no exercise increases your risk
  • Early menopause, either naturally or from surgery.

    Peak Bone Mass
    Peak bone mass refers to the genetic potential for bone density. By the age of 20, the average woman has acquired most of her skeletal mass. A large decline in bone mass occurs in older adults, increasing the risk of osteoporosis. For women this occurs around the time of menopause. It is important for young girls to reach their peak bone mass in order to maintain bone health throughout life. A person with high bone mass as a young adult will be more likely to have a higher bone mass later in life. Inadequate calcium consumption and physical activity early on could result in a failure to achieve peak bone mass in adulthood.

    Osteoporosis or "porous bone" is a disease of the skeletal system characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue. Osteoporosis leads to an increase risk of bone fractures typically in the wrist, hip, and spine.
