Junkfood Not Just Make Fat But Also Cause Osteophorosis

Everyone already knows that fast food is high in fat and contain large amounts of sugar can lead to obesity. But it can also increase the risk of osteoporosis.

Ron Zernicke, a scientist from the University of Michigan's School of Kinesiology along with Cy Frank of the Alberta Bone and Joint Health Institution have verified that sugar and fat intake plays a role in the development of conditions such as osteoporosis weakens bones way.

Junk food high in sugar and saturated fat can inhibit the absorption of calcium, in addition to saturated fats can form a soapy solution and can coat the bowel. Both effects can cause the body can not absorb calcium to keep bones strong optimal.

Unfortunately, fast food is not only too much sugar, but some also contain too much salt. Sodium in salt is an important part of one's diet and 90 percent of the sodium in the body derived from the consumption of salt.

But salt can cause calcium loss, especially table salt is often added to foods ready to eat. In fact, as many as 40 mg of calcium is lost from the body through the urine for every 2,300 mg of sodium (one teaspoon of salt).

Though people can consume about 4,000 mg of salt from fast food per day. In addition, the consumption of soda with junk food reduces the amount of calcium in the body that needed bone.

Approximately 100 mg of caffeine and sugar in soda can eliminate about 6 mg of calcium from the body, as reported by NaturalNews, Wednesday (01/23/2013).

Zernicke and Frank have noted that 1 in 3 women in the world experience a hip fracture at age 85 years due to osteoporosis. And even more frightening is about 20 percent of that amount will die after a year suffered a hip injury.

If obesity alone is not enough reason to stop eating junk food, maybe you'll think again after knowing that the ill effects of junk food can cause bone loss and osteoporosis.
