Smoking is associated with lower areal bone mineral density (aBMD) and higher fracture risk, although most evidence has been derived from studies in elderly subjects. This study investigates smoking habits in relation to areal and volumetric bone parameters and fracture prevalence in young, healthy males at peak bone mass. Healthy male siblings (n = 677) at the age of peak bone mass (25 to 45 years) were recruited in a cross-sectional population-based study. Trabecular and cortical bone… CONTINUE READING
