Pre-Teen OsteoporosisHealthy Living
I knew it was coming. Decades ago, Dr. Price warned it would happen. Even still, I was completely unprepared for what I saw in the Post Office line last week. Tears welled up in my eyes at the sight of an obese boy, probably about 11 years old, with a very clearly defined Dowager’s hump, one of the most obvious signs of osteoporosis! I couldn’t help but think how many gallons of soda that boy had consumed to leech enough calcium out of his bones to produce a hump at such a young age.
