Led by the International Osteoporosis Foundation, World Osteoporosis Day takes place every year on October 20th to emphasize and raise awareness around the importance of building healthy bones. Sunsweet is a proud official sponsor of World Osteoporosis Day and supports the goal of helping reduce the preventable risk of osteoporosis, through a bone-healthy lifestyle with a diet rich in fruits and vegetables including prunes.
Over 200 million people worldwide are affected by osteoporosis, with an osteoporotic fracture occurring every three seconds. Taking preventative measures, and making simple lifestyle shifts, is key to navigating and preventing the risk of osteoporosis. Nutrition, coupled with physical activity and early detection, plays an integral role in protecting the future of your bones. Research findings suggest that eating prunes can lead to improved bone health.
