Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
Bone density is one of the most common fears people have about their health. I was raised to think about my bone density and what I could do about it. Aside from proper nutrition, we also need to be aware of the effects exercise has on our bone health. Knowing that there is something we can do about the silent epidemic of bone loss and osteoporosis is encouraging.
