A second study of more than 37,000 participants found that variants of the lrp5
gene are associated with an increase in the risk of bone fractures (up to 20 percent), as well as lowered bone mineral density.

The secret to long life may not be in the genes
...the KLOTHO gene, which is generally related to a good level of mineral density and therefore healthy bones. Neither did they find any mutations in the lrp5
gene, which is associated with longevity. None of the members of the family who participated in the study presented any mutations in this gene.
