By 2020, half of all Americans over 50 will be at risk for fractures from osteoporosis and low bone mass if immediate action is not taken. According to a report from the U.S. Surgeon General, 10 million Americans over the age of 50 have osteoporosis while another 34 million are at risk for developing osteoporosis. Paget's disease, osteogenesis imperfecta, and other bone and mineral disorders are less common but can be even more devastating to their victims leading to a downward spiral in physical health and quality of life. Medical practitioners need quick access to information on these disorders in order to help patients and their families. The Bone and Mineral Manual, 2e is designed specifically for this purpose.
