Next time you open a can of pineapples, don't throw the juice away. Research shows that drinking pineapple juice or eating other foods rich in manganese could protect your bones.

Take action:
Try to include pineapple and pineapple juice in your diet. A good idea is to add pineapple to fruit salads, green salads, smoothies, home-made chutney, pizza and desserts.
