A terrific article by Gretchen Reynolds of the New York Times about the dangers of osteoporosis and what can be done to strengthen bones. To quote Dr Daniel Barry of the University of Colorado, Denver:
"'Jumping is great, if your bones are strong enough to begin with,' Dr. Barry says.
The National Osteoporosis Foundation is the preeminent organization in the United States for information and research regarding osteoporosis. Here is how they descrive themselves on their website:
“The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) is the leading health organization dedicated to preventing osteoporosis and broken bones, promoting strong bones for life and reducing human suffering through programs of public and clinician awareness, education, advocacy and research. Established in 1984, NOF is the nation's only health organization solely dedicated to osteoporosis and bone health.”
