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.[1] 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.

The findings align with previous studies that have discovered dried plums’ benefits on both bone and colon health.
