INTRODUCTION Abundant animal and human evidence demonstrates that loading stimuli generate positive adaptive changes in bone, but effects of activity on bone mineral density (BMD) are often modest and frequently equivocal. HYPOTHESIS Physical activity effects on the femur would be better reflected in measurements of geometry than BMD. STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional cohort study. METHODS We used data from 6032 women of mixed ethnicity aged 50-79 yr who had dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry… CONTINUE READING
