Because I am so passionate about Public Health, I figured why not learn about preventing bone disease. Yes, granted, it’s a disease that predominately affects older people, but hey! It’s never too early to prevent something that may occur in the future. Plus, preventative measures are lighter on your pockets than actually treating the disease! In anycase, I digress!
Did you know that exercising not only benefits one by reducing their risk of contracting a heart disease such as diabetes and stroke but it can also help prevent various bone diseases such as osteoporosis. You are probably wondering how the heck does exercising promote healthy bones. Well, just like your muscles, bones are tissues that get stronger when one exercises. Young adults that exercise build more bone density compared to those that don’t. So young adults, it’s not too late for you to build stronger bones! Why not kill two birds with one stone? Why not exercise to stay in shape WHILE building healthy, strong bones to avoid bone disease in the future?
