Human bones typically grow during childhood and adolescence. When we reach adulthood, it is critical to maintain our bone density and prevent bone loss at an alarming rate. Osteoporosis is already known as a growing global problem for people over the age of 50. World Osteoporosis Day takes place every October 20th every year to remind us and to raise awareness on how important it is to take care of our bone health. Ensure your family maintains a bone-healthy lifestyle to prevent osteoporosis from occurring prematurely.
