NIH: Osteoporosis Is Widespread Among Men Too

[] Forty-four million Americans are at risk of contracting osteoporosis, a disease of low bone mass that can lead to breaks and fractures, according to the latest figures from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Furthermore, the government figures show that one of every two women and one in four men over age 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetimes.
