Food for preventing osteoporosis

In today's post I would like to share some information about preventing osteoporosis. In the past, we used to believe that it is caused by the lack of calcium. Recent medical research shows that it is spinal fracture that triggers oteoporosis. The connective tissue known collagen plays a vital part in preventing oesteoporosis.

The increase of blood sugar will cause the connective tissue to fuse thereby causing it to lose its function of acting as lubricant resulting in spinal fracture. Hence it is important to check the increase in the blood sugar. Luckily, we can take certain food to achieve thise effect.

The food in question includes mackerel, sardine, clams, folic acid, brocolli, spinach, garland chrysanthemum (tong hou in Cantonese), soybeans and asparagus.
