“The annual cost of osteoporosis and fractures in the US elderly was estimated at $16 billion, using a national 2002 population-based sample. This amount corroborates previous estimates based on substantially different methodologies. The national cost of osteoporosis and fractures was estimated at $22 billion.” (Blume SW, 2011 Jun;22(6). )
Bones literally are the support system of your body, making it incredibly important to keep them strong and healthy. During your lifetime, your bones are continuously being broken down and rebuilt in tiny amounts. Before you are 30 you should be laying down the most dense bone of your life.
