Abstract

Osteoporosis afflicts a large population of older women in the United States and has major impacts on morbidity and mortality. Previously, non-Hispanic white women were believed to be at greatest risk of osteoporosis, but current research suggests that Hispanic women are of similar risk.While risk increases with age and is influenced by genetics, lifestyle behaviors throughout the life cycle contribute to disease prevention. Our results found no differences in bone mineral density, dietary characteristics, or physical activity between young Hispanic and non-Hispanic white women. However, both groups failed to meet, but should engage in, recommended practices for bone health maintenance.
