When my mother was diagnosed with osteoporosis, I searched the bookstores for a useful book combining both science and nutrition, and when I couldn't find one, I wrote this one for her. Like all of my other books, this one translates the latest scientific knowledge into practical guidelines. Each chapter focuses on one of the ten major risk factors affecting bone health: age, heredity, women-only (menarche-to-menopause), body shape, physical, prescriptions, lifestyle, nutrients, and foods, with a final chapter summing it all up. Included are case studies, exercises, food composition tables, and menus showing how to add calcium to your diet through simple changes.
