A New Wrinkle In Bone Health

"Don't scowl when you read this, but the lines on our face may
say something about the status of your skeleton. Researchers
determined that the deeper and more abundant a woman's facial
wrinkles, the weaker her bones. Why? Both skin and skeleton are
supported by collagen, a fibrous protein. If you have a lot of
wrinkles, ask your doctor about your fracture risk, says study
author Lubna pal, MD. Also take 1,200 mg of calcium daily along
with doing weight-bearing exercise."
