Amira Khaled (Echo):

The Ministry of Health revealed that the incidence of osteoporosis in the Kingdom reaches 40%, most of them women, due to the lack of bone mass as a result of pregnancy and lactation.

The Ministry of Health stated in a recent study that scientific studies confirm that the rate of bone fracture due to fragility in women is about 80%, compared to the incidence of fractures in men.

She indicated that about 13% of the number of men over the age of 50 years will develop some fractures associated with osteoporosis during their lifetime, as a result of the weakness that occurs on the bones during youth and adolescence.
