Diet and Bone Health

Diet and Bone Health

This is the title of a new topical update produced by the National Dairy Council. It brings together all the latest research on the subject of bone health and osteoporosis. It discusses why osteoporosis causes an individual to suffer and its economic burden on society, the influence of dietary calcium on peak bone mass and ways to ensure an adequate calcium intake for bone health. The influence of vitamin D and ways of ensuring an adequate intake are also reviewed as are factors other than calcium and vitamin D, such as life style, on bone health. Diet and Bone Health is available, free of charge, from the National Dairy Council, 5-7 John Princes Street, London W1M 0AP.
