ABSTRACT:
Osteoporosis, or porous bone, is a disease characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to bone fragility and an increased susceptibility to fractures of the hip, spine, and wrist. Osteoporosis is a disease that can often be prevented and treated. Bone is living, growing tissue. It is made mostly of collagen, a protein that provides a soft framework, and calcium phosphate, a mineral that adds strength and hardens the framework. This combination of collagen and calcium makes bone strong yet flexible to withstand stress. More than 99% of the body calcium is contained in the bones and teeth. The remaining 1% is found in the blood.
KEYWORDS:
Bone fragility, collagen, and calcium phosphate.
