October 20th marks the World Osteoporosis Day

We closed off with Tereza Hough – CEO of the National Osteoporosis Foundation. According to reports, more than one-third of women over the age of 50 and nearly half of those over age 70 are affected by osteoporosis. Osteoporosis in men is on the increase, and one in 5 men will develop this disease. For more information you can contact the National Osteoporosis Foundation at (021) 931 7894 or their Help line 0861 102 265 alternatively visit www.osteoporosis.org.za
