Abstract

Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder characterized by reduced bone quantity and quality and an increased susceptibility to fracture, and seems to be one of many chronic conditions that might be influenced by events early in life. Specifically, there is growing evidence of an interaction between the genome and the environment in the expression of the disease.
