Exercise can cause osteoporosis

Did you know that 6 million of the 28 million Americans who have osteoporosis are men?  Unlike many other diseases, the incidence of osteoporosis is increasing rather than decreasing.  It is now generally recognized that the biggest cause of osteoporosis is the diet.  Unfortunately many health professionals still think that exercise (or lack of it) is a major cause.  This is not so.  Confusion arises because exercise is seen to increase bone density, but new research shows that by increasing bone density through exercise this actually increases the risk of osteoporosis in the long term.  For the evidence and a full explanation go to www.milkimperative.com or get this free ebook: Osteoporosis Can Be Prevented.
