Nutrition is one of the more important factors that influence bone mass. The skeleton is the body's calcium reserve. When absorbed calcium from the diet is insufficient to offset excretory and dermal losses, bone will be torn down to maintain body fluid homeostasis. The author discusses ways to prevent this outcome.
