Beat Osteoporosis Special Diet Cook Book Summary

Beat Osteoporosis Special Diet Cook Book: Help Yourself to Delicious, Calcium-rich Meals for Better, Stronger Bones by Victor Ettinger

Osteoporosis has been known as a disease since the 19th century. Even then it was apparent that elderly women had an increased risk of long bone fractures after even minor falls. However, postmenapausal oestrogen deficiency was not linked to this disease until early in the 20th century. How this protective effect of oestrogen works is unknown. It is thought to be indirect, probably through effects on other hormones. It is only recently, within the last few decades, that we have become aware that several other hormones - progesterone and androgens to name two are also involved in a less significant though still important manner. Part of a series this book is written for the high proportion of women and men who suffer from osteoporosis, where the calcium in the bone decreases making them brittle and prone to fracture. It offers 100 recipes proving that including adequate calcium in your diet need not mean monotonous meals or make cooking a chore.
