Abstract

Osteoporosis is a major health threat. In the United States alone, 10 million people have osteoporosis already, and 18 million have low bone mass placing them at increased risk for the development of osteoporosis [1]. Once thought to be a natural part of aging among women, it is not longer considered age or sex dependant.
