“Real Men Build Their Strength from Within” is this year’s campaign by the International Osteoporosis Foundation. Today is World Osteoporosis Day for 2014, and the beginnning of the international campaign.
Men have Osteoporosis too, although they are only half as likely as women to be treated, even after a fracture.
One third of all hip fractures are in men. And a man is twice as likely as a woman to die of complications of his hip fracture.
Use the Links to the upper right to go to the International Osteoporosis Foundation website. Visit National Osteoporosis Foundation too.
Then get a Complete Bone Health Evaluation, and Take Control of your bone health.
