Abstract or Description: 
Originally published: 2002
Weak bones happen when the amount of bone loss in the body is larger than the amount of bone gain. When you have weak bones, simple things like sneezing, bending, and stepping can cause a bone to break. A mix of Calcium and Vitamin D rich foods can keep the body strong.
