Listen to the interview:
Osteoporosis can strike at any age, but it particularly affects people aged 50+. With proper care and diagnosis, untreated osteoporosis can lead to broken bones. Did you know that at least 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 5 men will suffer a broken bone from osteoporosis in their lifetime? Also, 40% of Canadian women aged 55-64 can’t define osteoporosis correctly, and only 24% of those aged 65+ feel like they can explain what it is. Zoomers, keep walking, do your tai chi or yoga, and lift weights!
