Osteoporosis is more common than I thought! Did you know that one in four Canadian women over age 50 have osteoporosis? I actually have close family members who have the disease so it hits close to home for me. I learned that it can strike at any age, but is most common after menopause.
OnTheGoWomen.ca is a website whose goal is “to educate women about the disease and stresses the importance of managing the condition with treatment and a healthy lifestyle. We have created many resources for your post including embeddable recipes from Margaret Dickenson that utilize osteoporosis-fighting ingredients and a conversation starter guide to discussing Osteoporosis with your Mom!”
Visit the site and learn more about osteoporosis- what it is, the risk factors, treatment options, and tips for reducing your risk. Please help me to spread the message about Osteoporosis awareness and share this website with the women in your life.
