ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Osteoporosis isn’t just for women, men get it too. One in five men over the age of 50 will suffer a fracture due to this bone-loss. Men are twice as likely as women to die following one of these fractures.
The problem is largely preventable. Take specific steps in your 20s, 30s, and 40s to preserve the bone mass. Men should avoid smoking and drinking and make sure to get enough calcium
It’s important to exercise. By improving muscle strength, balance, and coordination, you’ll be less likely to break a bone.
