Take a walk to keep you bones strong throughout your life

There is much evidence on how you need to keep your bones healthy as you age.  And Linda Sparrowe and Patricia Walden in their book  Yoga for healthy bones speak on the importance of diet and healthy bones.

As you age, especially after menopause, women begin to lose calcium from their bodies because of lifestyle choices; not participating in weight bearing exercising such as walking, and because of what they eat.
Research continues to mount on the fact that women who are vegetarian lose far less bone mass in their later years than women who eat animal-derived protein.
