CIHR Profiles Osteoporosis Research
You probably don't think about your skeleton too much as it quietly supports you through the day. But your bones are much more vulnerable than you may realize.
Osteoporosis, a painful and debilitating disease characterized by the gradual loss of bone density, strikes one out of four women and one out of eight men over the age of 50. Do your bones a favour: visit CIHR's website to find out what Canadian researchers are doing to improve osteoporosis screening, treatment and prevention.
