A healthy skeletal system with sturdy bones is vital to overall health and quality of life. Unfortunately that healthy skeletal system can start to go down hill when you hit 30 if you’re not careful.
Like many chronic disorders that affect the elderly, bone weakness and fractures are expected to increase greatly as the population ages. If these predictions come true, bone disease and fractures will have a tremendous negative impact on the future well-being of Americans. However, if preventative measures are taken from an early age, osteoporosis, fractures, and other chronic disorders should no longer be thought of as an inevitable part of growing old (www.surgeongeneral.gov). We are saying the terrible effects of porous bone, the fractures and reduced quality of life, can be prevented by many.
By focusing on prevention and lifestyle alterations, which include nutrition and exercise, especially at an early age, Americans can avoid many of the negative side effects of bone frailty and osteoporosis. While it’s important to focus on what to do in order to help bone health, such as getting enough Vitamin D to ensure your body absorbs calcium, you should also know some of the habits which endanger your bones the most. Some of the riskiest habits for your bones endanger your overall health in general, such as smoking and binge drinking. However, there are some other surprising bone-busting habits as well (www.spryliving.com).
