    Abstract  We explored factors that contributed to bone mineral density (BMD) in Japanese young women by quantifying the factors related to BMD. Between October 2003 and February 2004, we conducted a cross-sectional survey to study the status of nutritional intake and physical activity, and...

L.; Courteix, D.; Jaffré, C; Dolléans, E // Calcified Tissue International;Aug2009, Vol. 85 Issue 2, p146 

    Regular activity has effects on bone size, shape, and density, resulting in an increase in mechanical strength. The mechanism of action that underlies this improvement in bone strength is mainly linked to an increase in bone formation. Zoledronic acid (Z), in contrast, may prevent bone strength...

    Background: It is known that physical activity during growth has a positive influence on bone mineral accrual, and is thus possibly one strategy to prevent osteoporosis. However, as bone geometry, independent of areal bone mineral density (aBMD), influences fracture risk, this study aimed to...

In the continuous process of remodelling, the bone tissue is broken down and renewed. The bone density increases in young age. In old age, bones can be kept healthy by...

    There have been relatively few studies that have compared the effects of both genetics and exercise on the incidence of osteoporosis. Recent investigations have shown that genetics plays a key role in determining bone mineral densities, which can influence osteoporosis risk, but that physical...
