Our expert says:
Osteo-arthritis is the wear and tear changes we experience as we age and it does seem to run in families as does osteoporosis. To curb the effects of arthritis you need to stay as active as possible, maintain a normal weight and follow a healthy diet. To guard against osteoporosis- exercise like walking 3x week, ensure a daily intake of 1000mg calcium, don't smoke, drink alcohol moderately and also take vit D 800IU/day.
