Fact! According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation most women over the age of 45 fail to recognize their personal risk for developing osteoporosis, the disease of "porous bones," even though the majority of women have at least two risk factors for the disease by this age.

Fact! Conflicting results of several major studies and recommendations by the US Preventive Services Task Force have put into question the benefits of supplements containing calcium to prevent bone loss.

Fact! What do experts draw from this controversy?

  • First, that better studies are needed to clarify the possible risks and benefits of calcium supplements and to whom they may apply.
  • Secondly, that the safest and most effective source of calcium is found in food choices, not supplements.
  • And finally that exercise is key to bone health, specifically weight bearing and strength training exercises.

Join us live on Sirius XM's Dr. Radio Show this Wednesday, June 19 from 8-9 am. I'll share all the insider tips that I've learned over the past 25 years as a fitness professional and address questions such as:

  • What are the major risk factors for osteoporosis?
  • What is the difference between weight-bearing and weight-training exercise?
  • How can you work these exercises into your lifestyle, no matter what your fitness level?
  • What kind of exercise is safe if you've been diagnosed with osteoporosis?
