       Osteoporosis
       
Each year, there are an estimated 500,000 spinal fractures, 300,000 hip fractures, 200,000 broken wrists, and 300,000 fractures of other bones.  About 80% of these fractures occur from relatively minor falls or accidents.
        Between 25% and 60% of women over 60 years of age develop spinal compression fractures.
        A womanís risk of developing an osteoporosis-related hip fracture is equal to her combined risk of developing breast  uterine and ovarian cancer.
        By age 90, one third of all women and 17% of men have sustained a hip fracture.
