For my uncle one of the miss conception is that this disease is genetic and if there’s no history of it then likely you won’t get the truth is that osteoporosis affects everyone. If you don’t get “the right amount of vitamin D in your system your body will become brittle and eventually it cause you problems” and for my uncle he should know better and, at the age of 60 he’s definitely at a higher risk than most because of the wear of the human body over time our bones starts to wear and we need more help to support our bones. So basically the older you are the more at risk you are in. but, in some case family history. Osteoporosis tends to run in families. If a family member has osteoporosis or breaks a bone, there is a greater chance that you will too.
