I was first confronted with osteoporosis when my mother was diagnosed with it. The impact of osteoporosis nationally and globally, is quite incredible. I have two young girls, and I am extremely aware that what they eat and the way that they behave now – what they put into their bones now is going to have an effect on them later on. It’s move it or lose it – you need to exercise!
Sarcopenia is a disease associated with the aging process. Loss of muscle mass and strength, which in turn affects balance, gait and overall ability to perform tasks of daily living, are hallmark signs of this disease.
Scientists have long believed muscle loss and others signs associated with aging are an inevitable process. However, researchers are looking for ways in which we can slow the aging process, specifically in relation to loss of muscle mass and strength.

I think osteoporosis is a serious problem. When you have a lack of calcium you can easily get osteoporosis. We should be more concerned about our daily diet and having more exercise so we can maintain a healthy body. Then you will have more time to take care of your family and bring happiness to everyone.
The decision makers in the field of health politics are still not taking this widespread disease seriously enough despite its enormous impact on our society.
