Calcium in Bone
Changes In Bone Density


Osteoporosis is a disease of bone in which the bone mineral density is reduced and the bones are more susceptible to fracture. Osteoporosis is best described as "porous bones".

Bones are living tissue, constantly being rebuilt. With osteoporosis, the rate of bone loss is greater than that of bone rebuilding, causing thin, porous bones that break easily.

More than 28 million Americans have osteoporosis or are at high risk of developing it. 

Material and instructions:
In this project you will learn about bone loss and perform experiments to investigate the reduction in bone density and possibly increase the bone density.
