Can a “sufficient ” Vitamin D level prevent muscular injuries?  Not exactly, but close enough to get my attention.  Low (“deficient”) Vitamin D levels are associated with higher muscular injury rates.

Choose Your Parents Carefully

You cannot really Choose Your Parents.  You CAN choose to observe and be warned.  Everyone inherits good and bad genes from their parents.

If your parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents have all lost height as they aged and/or broken their hips, you probably inherited a tendency to have osteoporosis as well.  You have been warned.  Act early to avoid a similar fate.

The third time was NOT the charm.  Aunt Henrietta had fallen twice, broken twice, and recovered twice.  She had managed to return to living in her home alone.  Then in March she went out to get the newspaper in the driveway.  It would be safe.  All the ice had melted yesterday.  And refrozen as black ice during the night!
