How can I help prevent osteoporosis?

Senior health care: osteoporosis

To aid in the prevention of osteoporosis, senior care experts recommend you limit the consumption of rich foods like beef liver, bologna, fried chicken, hot-dogs, ground beef and ham. These foods inhibit calcium absorption and increase calcium excretion. Restrict salt (sodium) intake, as this forces the kidneys to excrete calcium as well.
