Sacramento, Calif. (March 10, 2016) - One in two women and up to one in four men over age 50 will break a bone in their lifetime due to osteoporosis. While bone health may not top the list of common health concerns, the risk is real. In fact, for women, the chance of breaking a hip is equal to her combined risk of breast, uterine and ovarian cancer.1 Various lifestyle factors, including diet and exercise, can help to prevent osteoporosis, which is actually not considered a normal part of aging. And new research, published in Osteoporosis International, highlights the important role that one specific fruit - dried plums (prunes) - might play in strengthening bones.
