There is an old belief that Asians suffer less from osteoporosis. And it's true, in Asia, the rural population actually has less to do with this type of problem than the urban population or the European population.


In China, for example, osteoporosis affects 10% of the male population and 27% of the female population over 50, compared to 50% in the European population. In France, the rate is higher among men! This percentage has, moreover, been increasing for the past 15 years and will continue to increase worldwide... Urbanization and industrialization could perhaps be a lead to this difference. But above all, several factors may explain the low fracture rates in rural areas: higher physical activity, exposure to light (vitamin D production), heat (better metabolism) and diet to promote a more varied microbiota.
