Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The authors present good, understandable information about osteoporosis, a disease which causes thinning of the bones. Analyzed here are the risk factors involved in getting osteoporosis, how it can be detected, and what can be done to reduce or even halt bone loss. The authors contend that the process of risk reduction starts before birth and continues throughout life. Also included are a daily exercise program for managing osteoporosis and a list showing the calcium content of common foods. Recommended.-- Susan E. Holmer, Peninsula Lib. System, San Mateo, Cal.
