Transcript of Osteoporosis

What is osteoporosis?
How it affects the body
Reasons Why
Osteoporosis is a condition where your bones get brittle and weak. The main causes are are hormonal changes and lack of calcium and vitamin D. Many women are affected by this disease.
Osteoporosis affects your bones or your skeletal system. It makes your bones more fragile and so they may break easily. The skeletal system support the body and allow movement. With osteoporosis your bones are weak and then it will be harder for you to move.
Avoid Drinking Alcohol
Don't Smoke
Regular Exercise
Vitamin D
Healthy Diet
Alcohol leeches the calcium from your bones.
Smoking reduces calcium and interferes with your body's usage of vitamin D.
Regular exercise makes your bones stronger.
Calcium helps make your bones stronger
Vitamin D helps with calcium absorption
As always, a healthy diet is beneficial to your bone health.
The Structure and Function of Skeletal System
Supports the body
Protects soft organs which are made from tissues which are made from cells
Allows movement due to attached skeletal muscles
Storage of minerals and fats
Blood cell formation
Bones or skeleton
Ligaments (bone to bone) Tendon(bone to muscle)
Our Campaign
We are going to write a catchy song about how to prevent osteoporosis and make a music video that we plan to post on YouTube.
Calcium is one of the minerals needed to remodel or for new bone tissue to form.
Both vitamin D and Calcium are needed otherwise you might get hyperthyroi-dism. (when the parathyroid glands in your neck produce to much hormones.)
