Inside your body, bones are the scaffolding that keep you standing upright. As you get older, these supports can weaken. And if they get too weak, you could wind up with a fracture. Let’s talk about the bone-thinning condition called osteoporosis. Your internal scaffolding was built when you were young. You can eat foods that are high in these nutrients, like frozen yogurt, salmon, and low-fat milk, or, if you’re not a big fan of fish or dairy, you can take supplements.
