I would like to comment on the work of Stafford et al1 on national trends in osteoporosis. Many consider osteoporosis to be exclusively a woman’s disease. However, 2 million men in the United States have osteoporosis (compared with 8 million women). Millions more men and women have low bone density, placing them at risk for the disease.2
