Staying agile reduces hip fracture risk

Women who engage in substantial leisure time activity, including walking, are less likely to sustain a hip fracture. A new report from the long-running Nurses' Health Study, covering over 57,000 postmenopausal women in the US,// shows that keeping active keeps the bones strong. Each weekly increase of three hours activity(known as metabolic equivalent task or MET) was linked to a six per cent decrease in hip fracture risk. Three hours MET is similar to one hour of walking a week.

Women with at least 20 MET a week had a 50 per cent lower risk of hip fracture, compared to those reporting less than three MET a week. Among women who did no other exercise, four hours of walking a week nearly halved their risk of hip fracture. The message is clear - to keep your bones strong and intact, you should keep moving and include as much walking as you can in your weekly routine.
