What Do You Know About Osteoporosis? Take a Look at These Facts

Did you know that over 10.2 million adults have Osteoporosis and another 43.4 million have low bone mass? I didn’t know this until I was recently contacted by the American Recall Center whose goal is to inform people about the serious danger of this disease. Another frightening fact that their outreach coordinator shared with me is that Osteoporosis accounts for more time spent in the hospital even more than diseases like diabetes, breast cancer and heart attacks, shocking isn’t it?

I have a great aunt who has Osteoporosis and it is literally crippling. I myself have issue with a curvature in my spine, although not severe, it is still a concern for me.  This really sparked my interest and I think it is a disease that we need to gain awareness about and be knowledgeable on how we can prevent it from happening to us. Osteoporosis greatly effects women and I want all of us to stay as healthy as possible for both ourselves and our kids. Take some time to look at some startling Facts below and to learn more about prevention go to  http://www.recallcenter.com/about-us/
