Jet Li, action film star

I think osteoporosis is a serious problem. When you have a lack of calcium you can easily get osteoporosis. We should be more concerned about our daily diet and having more exercise so we can maintain a healthy body. Then you will have more time to take care of your family and bring happiness to everyone.

Pilin Leon, Miss Venezuela y Miss Mundo 1981.

Muchísimas más mujeres adquieren osteoporosis que cáncer de seno. Desde mi experiencia como Miss Venezuela y Miss Mundo, noto que ahora las niñas están mucho más delgadas. Una de las cosas que hay que hacer, aparte de alimentarse bien es hacer ejercicio, con caminar varias veces a la semana o bailar que es una cosa muy rica, puedes ayudar a tus huesos!
