Good Health Choices - - Health bites -

The risk of devel­op­ing os­teo­poro­sis sig­nif­i­cantly in­creases for women who have gone through menopause – but new re­search found women who par­tic­i­pated in 60 to 120 sec­onds of high-in­ten­sity, weight-bear­ing ex­er­cise had four per cent bet­ter

bone health than women who did less than a minute of ex­er­cise, while women who did more than two min­utes of this ex­er­cise had six per cent bet­ter bone health.
