Depends, but notice: The general wisdom is that calcium rich diet protects from osteoporosis in your age group. Calcium rich diet may also increase risk for coronary disease especially if calcium supplements are added. The effect and rapidity of action of calcium on bone cannot be estimated. Exercise, 10 min daily bike etc, has great effects on bones.If you have no osteoporosis, your best bet is exercise prevention.
