Osteoporosis, a disease that results in weak, brittle bones is a major health threat that affects 44 million Americans each year. This disease is referred to as the 'silent disease' because 1 out of 2 women over age 50 and 1 out of 8 men develop osteoporosis and half of them don't even know they have it. Strong bones are essential for carrying out everyday movements like bending, and lifting. Thick healthy bone exercises are vital for fracture prevention.
