Dr. Praveen Kumar Rai, Orthopedic Surgeon, Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, Essex, England was the resource person. In his presentation, he said, ‘Calcium and Vitamin D play a crucial role in determining bone health of an individual. The lifestyles and food preferences of the people results in low level of calcium intake which again causes adverse influence on bone health. Women start with lower bone density than their male peers and lose bone mass more quickly as they age, which leads to osteoporosis in some women.’
