Osteoporosis causes brittle and fragile bones that often happen to women after menopause. Healthy bones require a healthy lifestyle, a lot of physical activities and consumption of foods rich in calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, strontium, boron, vitamin D, potassium, collagen, sodium, vitamin K and B-vitamins.
WHICH FOODS COULD HARM THE BONES?
Consumption of dried meat (cold cuts), processed sugar and bleached flour depletes the body of vitamins and minerals, which are necessary for maintaining good bone health and for proper functioning of many bodily operations.
Cold cuts contain preservative called sodium nitrate, which can damage the bones. Too much sodium in the body can in fact exhaust supplies of calcium and nitrates, which the body needs for normal operation, and is converted to nitrites, which increase the risk of cancer and methemoglobinemia (a blood disease when hemoglobin is no longer able to carry oxygen around the body).
