Osteoporosis is likely to become one of the major health burdens of the coming decades. According to the American National Institute for Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, in the United States today, 10 million individuals already have osteoporosis and 34 million more have low bone mass, placing them at increased risk for this of disease. However, osteoporosis is not only a fateful burden of the aging human, but several diseases, medications and other factors may contribute to the osteoporosis risk.
