Description Describes the various dietary factors involved in bone development or attrition

Document Abstract:
Although genetic factors account for some 80% of the peak bone mass (PBM), it has been estimated that as much as 50% of the osteoporotic burden of later life could be prevented by appropriate dietary measures taken before the PBM reached its peak in the 20ís or 30ís. This is largely in the form of adequate calcium and vitamin D intake. As the incidence of osteoporosis is increasing with increasing age of the population and other factors this subject is obviously of great relevance.
