Sarcopenia

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.

Para mí es muy importante ser parte de esta campaña contra la osteoporosis porque tuve un familiar con ese problema. Creo que es muy importante buscar la forma de hacer ejercicios para mantenerse saludable.
Una de las formas más fáciles y que uno disfruta más es poder bailar. O no?
Mi consejo sano es que hay que comer bien y mover el esqueleto porque sino vamos a perderlo. ….Yo quiero un cuerpo sano, quiero moverme libre!...

Manolya Onur, Miss Turkey 1975

Even if you have osteoporosis and suffer from pain, exercise can help with rehabilitation. It is never too late to start doing exercise. Consult your doctor and see what type of exercise is best for you and start your exercise program today.

Britt Ekland, Swedish actress

I am an actor and staying slim is part of the job, so like most celebrities I have been on a diet for most of my adult life. As a result, my body has been deprived of essential vitamins and nutrients, which no doubt contributed to my osteoporosis. I do worry terribly about today's female celebrities, who are even thinner than our generation was. And the worst thing is that other women feel they have to copy the people they see looking so slim in magazines and in the films.
