Is it that only elderly women suffer from osteoporosis?

Myth: Only elderly women suffer from osteoporosis
Fact: A disorder of bones, osteoporosis is not a disorder affecting a particular gender or age. It can affect men and women of all ages. Often known as a silent epidemic, osteoporosis has also been seen in people as young as 25 years. The disease has nothing to do with old age. It actually depends on your body composition and your bone structure. The weaker and more porous the bones, higher is the risk of suffering from the disorder.
