Product Description
Product Details


Osteoporosis is a preventable and treatable disease characterized by decreasing bone mass. Nelson and Wernick, coauthors of Strong Women Stay Young and Strong Women Stay Slim, explain in a clear and friendly manner how bones grow; osteoporosis risk factors; how to adjust the diet to include calcium, vitamin D, and other bone-essential nutrients; the types of weight-bearing exercises that should be performed to promote maximum bone health; and the latest osteoporosis treatment options. The authors urge readers to think about how this disease pertains to them by using the book's handy "One-Hour Self Assessment Checklist" once a year. Nancy E. Lane's The Osteoporosis Book (LJ 10/1/98) contains similar prevention and treatment information, but Strong Women, Strong Bones focuses more heavily on diet and exercise and contains sample menus, a grocery shopping list, a detailed exercise program, and sample logs for keeping track of diet and workouts. Men also get osteoporosis, and the authors briefly explain how they can adapt the nutrition and exercise advice to meet their needs. Highly recommended for consumer health collections.
