11 Points for Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis

1. Osteoporosis is a chronic disease that can be prevented and treated.

2. People should pay attention to the prevention of osteoporosis at all ages. The lifestyles of infants and young people are closely related to the occurrence of osteoporosis in adulthood.

3. A balanced diet rich in calcium, low salt and appropriate amount of protein is beneficial to prevent osteoporosis.

4. Smoking increases the risk of fracture for both men and women.

5. Do not drink too much. Daily alcohol consumption should be controlled within the following standards: 570 mL beer, 60 mL white spirit, 240 mL wine or 120 mL aperitif.
