My Home Page
When I first turn on my computer in the morning,whether it be at 4 a.m. or 6 a.m.,I find lots of great information. Much of it is regarding the latest news, but much of it is related to health issues that are of great concern to me and my health.Health is one of the subjects that catches my eye quickly.I suppose because I am getting older and find it covers many of my health issues.My Mom is 23 years older than myself, and from dealing with her issues,I am educating myself for down the road. One of the main concerns with Mom or really the elderly in general,is their bones breaking.When someone reaches Mom's age,85 or so,danger of tripping and falling is a high on their list of worries.Mom is very concerned about it. She fell,just this month, and hit her head and knocked herself unconscious.She has many other issues, some of which might have caused the fall, but nevertheless, falling is forever on her mind,and breaking a bone or two,in the process,is usually the end result. It is very difficult for folks Mom's age,to recover from a broken bone,in most cases. The number one reason for the bones breaking is the insufficient intake of calcium over ones life time.By the time you reach my age, it is hard to compensate for the lack of calcium over the past 50 plus years.This is the reason I have posted on the link above. It includes lots of other great and information, but the main topic of interest for me this morning was on Calcium and the 28 ways to prevent osteoporosis. I think that is a wonderful piece on the many ways to get calcium.I plan to utilize as many of the suggestions as possible.I will be adding all of the things mentioned,to my shopping list immediately.
