@contentandwell That was a great article about food that is good for your bones! I also am lactose intolerant (but I do love ice cream) and it is hard to get calcium. Tums works for me as well. I was surprised by the mention of dry prunes. Since I'm a fan, I'll have to include more of those with meals, cereal, salads, etc.
@contentandwell if it's okay, I still disagree about walking. Check out the Mayo Clinic site : "Exercising with Osteoporosis". Walking is classified as a form of "weight-bearing aerobic exercise" because you are on your feet and your bones are supporting your weight (osteo is the one disease where carrying extra weight is good for you!). The other forms of exercise in this category are: dancing, eliptical training machine, stair climbing and gardening. These exercises "work directly on your bones in your legs, hips and lower spine to slow bone loss."
Will read your prune article. Dried figs are a good source of calcium too.
Over twenty years ago (in my osteopenic years) I was a volunteer on the help-line at the Osteoporosis Society of Canada and although I didn't always practice what I preached, the knowledge was valuable.
