Regular walking is associated with reduced risk of fracture and, in our recent randomized trial, reduced calcaneal bone loss relative to controls. The present follow-up study compared the effects on dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, ultrasound and biochemical indices of bone density and metabolism of (i) taking up (ii) continuing with and (iii) ceasing brisk walking for exercise. Subjects were 68 postmenopausal women aged 60–70 years. Twenty previously sedentary women remained sedentary (Sed… CONTINUE READING
