Ways to Fight Osteoporosis -- Prunes? & other helpful tips

Most of these things you've probably already heard or have known.  Limit alcohol, limit sodium, don't drink soda, etc. etc.  But, in case you need a refresher, there's a link to an article from Health.com below.  Yes.  I even get my magazines through email!! 

I also read in a magazine last month that dried plums and onions were good for bone health.  I promptly went out and bought dried plums.  It's kind of hard to eat the required amount, though.  I guess in the study, women were eating 8 or 9 dried plums a day.  Whew!  That's a lot of prunes!  I can't remember which magazine I read that in, but you can read about the study on ScienceDaily.com.  And you've got to love a study that comes out of Florida State University.  *wink, wink* 

Here's the link to Health.com's refresher

DISCLOSURE: I am not a doctor, nutritionist or chemist. The things that I post to this site are usually experiments I do that may or may not work for me (I will always let you know which way) . Nothing I post is meant to treat any condition that you may have. You should always ask your own doctor's opinion on any condition that you may have. If you try anything from my site, you do so at your own risk. I'm an experimenter, always trying to make my own way. That's my thing. I'm happy if you find inspiration here. Life for me is always about creativity.
