Eating foods high in calcium can lower your osteoporosis risk.
The correct answer is fact. Your body needs calcium to build strong bones. Women ages 51 to 70 should have 1,200 mg of calcium a day. Men ages 51 to 70 and adults age 50 or younger should have 1,000 mg of calcium a day. In addition, everyone needs 400 to 800 IU of vitamin D daily to help the body absorb calcium.
