Calcium supplementation in girls, even before puberty, may help
prevent later osteoporosis, perhaps in part by bringing on earlier
menstruation, according to a study presented at a world congress on
osteoporosis last month.
Daily calcium supplementation can significantly affect the
development of optimum bone mass in teenaged girls, according to
research presented this week at the Fifth International Symposium:
Clinical Advances in Osteoporosis.
