Bone loss has been a big concern for the elderly for many years, hip fractures becoming a huge risk as we age. However, recent studies show an alarming increase in bone fractures in the teenage population. Why is this? Experts believe the increased rates of bone fractures in the younger generation are due to the fast food diets many children consume.
