New Osteoporosis Findings from Johns Hopkins University Described



By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Women's Health Weekly -- Researchers detail new data in Metabolic Bone Diseases. According to news originating from Baltimore, Maryland, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "The purpose of this review is to evaluate current evidence regarding the use of dietary and exercise interventions to prevent fractures in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Johns Hopkins University, "The key lifestyle modifications that can decrease risk of fracture in postmenopausal women include regular weight-bearing exercise and a balanced diet with adequate calcium and vitamin D intake. Other modifiable lifestyle factors critical to bone health and to decrease fracture risk include the avoidance of smoking, an excessively low body weight, excessive alcohol intake, and fall risks at home."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Emerging modifiable factors may include B-vitamin, omega-3 fatty acid, soy isoflavone, and dehydroepiandrosterone supplementation."
