Today is World Osteoporosis Day – a day dedicated to the complications caused in osteoporosis, studies for the cause and effects, and the possible remedies that the researchers are seeking. Osteoporosis is a public health issue related to bones. It is marked by weakening of bones, loss of bone mass and frequent fractures. All around the world there are millions who either suffer directly or have a sufferer of osteoporosis with them. They are keen to find out how they can recover from this chronic disease.
Researchers have so far discovered certain key factors that can cause this disease and one of this is alcohol abuse. Consuming alcohol over the limits every day can be detrimental for the bones, as for other organs. Abuse causes bone toxicity rendering them to become weaker with time. The eventual result is frequent fractures that take ages to heal.
Researchers are readily calling for people to quit their booze and lead a healthy life.
Bentham Science plays its role in providing all important research studies to help the osteoporosis patients and to keep people from drinking. Find out the study, Pathogenesis of Alcohol-Induced Osteoporosis and its Treatment: A Review, published in the journal, Current Drug Targets.
