Weight-bearing exercise helps prevent osteoporosis.

Did you know 34 million of us are at risk for osteoporosis? So please, do what you can now before a walker becomes one of your must-have accessories.

Joan's Tips:

  • Do weight bearing exercise. For me, it's arm curls with jewelry.
  • Get plenty of exercise. Bike, jog, walk a few laps around the red carpet.
  • Get lots of calcium and vitamin D. Pour yourself a milk bath. Mug a cow. And drink plenty of lattes, decaf of course.
  • Do not, I repeat do not, smoke or drink too much alcohol.
  • Ask your orthopaedist about bone density tests.
  • And above all, remember beauty is bone deep.
