What Foods Fight Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a debilitating disease that affects the entire world population. The International Osteoporosis Foundation reports:

• Worldwide, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually, resulting in an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds.
• Osteoporosis is estimated to affect 200 million women worldwide – approximately one-tenth of women aged 60, one-fifth of women aged 70, two-fifths of women aged 80 and two-thirds of women aged 90.
• Osteoporosis affects an estimated 75 million people in Europe, USA and Japan

Osteoporosis is not restricted to women. After age 50 a man is as likely to get osteoporosis as prostate cancer.
