    Fifty percent of adolescent boys and 20 percent of adolescent girls do not get the nutrition they need for bone health. Your bones become “spongy” when you have a disease called osteoporosis.

    Osteoporosis is a disease of the skeletal system which results from weak bones. Unfortunately, you may not even know you have the disease until you break a bone.
