A large body of evidence relates nutrition in the early stages of life to health later in life. Osteoporosis, a disease affecting several million older people worldwide, is a condition that must be prevented from childhood. Bone grows longitudinally and cross-sectionally during childhood and adolescence, with the largest accumulation of skeletal tissue (50 percent of the total mass) taking place during the adolescent growth spurt. In the third decade of life, the growth and development of the… Expand
Adolescent dairy consumption and physical activity associated with bone mass.
Tanner pubic hair stage, ethnicity, and biacromial breadth had the greatest influence on SOS; while physical activity, body weight, and dairy product intake had the largest influence on BUA. Expand
Asupan vitamin, mineral, rasio asupan kalsium dan fosfor dan hubungannya dengan kepadatan mineral tulang kalkaneus wanita
The relationship between intake of vitamin A, C, calcium, phosphor, zinc and ratio of calcium and phosphor intake and BMD was statistically insignificant (p>0.05). Expand
SCIENTIFIC OPINION Calcium and bone growth Scientific substantiation of a health claim related to calcium and bone growth pursuant to Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 1 Scientific Opinion of the Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies
The Panel considers that normal growth and development of bone is beneficial to children’s health and the food/constituent that is the subject of the health claim is sufficiently characterised. Expand
The elderly as a sensitive population in environmental exposures: making the case.
An organ system-by-organ system review of the effects of human aging and the implications for such aging on susceptibility to drugs and xenobiotics found that the elderly might be at greater risk when exposed to environmental substances. Expand

Delineating an Unmarked Graveyard by High-Resolution GPR and pXRF Prospection: The Medieval Church Site of Furulund in Norway
The lack of accurate locational information on abandoned medieval and later graveyards constitutes a considerable challenge to national and local bodies tasked with their protection and management.Expand


Calcium supplementation and increases in bone mineral density in children.
In prepubertal children whose average dietary intake of calcium approximated the recommended dietary allowance, calcium supplementation increased the rate of increase in bone mineral density. Expand

Regular weight‐bearing exercise and at least a normal age‐related body weight in adolescence and young adulthood are of key importance in reaching the highest lumbar peak bone mass at the age of 27 years. Expand

The results suggest that the recommended dietary allowance for calcium should be higher than the amount currently established for children, adolescents, and young adults to ensure a level of skeletal retention of calcium for maximal peak bone mass. Expand
Role of physical activity in the development of skeletal mass in children
The data suggest that important increments in skeletal mass may result from physical activity during childhood, and not time spent watching television nor hours of physical education classes were associated either positively or negatively with skeletal mass. Expand
Physical activity and bone mass: exercises in futility?
The amount of bone gain that can be achieved appears dependent primarily on the initial bone mass suggesting that individuals with extremely lowInitial bone mass may have more to gain from exercise than those with moderately reduced bone mass. Expand
Calcium supplementation and bone mineral density in adolescent girls.
Increasing daily calcium intake from 80% of the recommended daily allowance to 110% via supplementation with calcium citrate malate resulted in significant increases in total body and spinal bone density in adolescent girls. Expand

Exercise stimulates bone growth, resulting in an increased demand for minerals that is satisfied by an increase in serum 1,25(OH)2D3 levels and increased intestinal absorption of calcium. Expand
Calcium absorption in women: relationships to calcium intake, estrogen status, and age.
There was a highly significant inverse correlation between calcium intake and absorption fraction, with the best fit provided by an hyperbola in which absorption fraction is approximately inversely proportional to the square root of intake. Expand
Baseline measurement of bone mass predicts fracture in white women.
A single bone mass measurement of the radius is predictive of future nonspine fractures at all sites, and at both the forearm and the hip. Expand
Bone mineral content of two populations of Chinese children with different calcium intakes.
The study suggests that the regional discrepancy in BMC might be explained by long-term habitual calcium intake and physical activity. Expand
