A new study has found that obese people with higher levels of fat in their liver, muscle tissue and blood also have higher amounts of fat in their bone marrow, putting them at risk for osteoporosis.

Betsy Blandford Walker‘s insight:

Here is another reason to get out and do the  Colorado Get Movin’ Challenge http://getmovinchallenge.org/. I recently took my kids to Water World where there is plenty of good people watching but I found myself contemplating the sad future for the many heavy and obese people I saw-children too!  We know that overweight people do not exercise enough and thus they do not stimulate their bones to replace bone as fast as it is absorbed.  This article states that Higher Levels of Bone Marrow fat makes bones weak and puts overweight people at a higher risk for fracture.  Once a person has a fracture they are more likely to enter a nursing home and have more fractures.  Is this what we want Colorado?  Encourage the people you know to join in The Colorado Get Movin’s Challenge, get fit and build stronger bones.  The Challenge Starts August 1st!
