|Title:||Osteoporosis: A Future Public Health Problem for Israel?

Osteoporosis in the Jewish population may not yet be a recognized syndrome, but the harsh conditions to which Holocaust survivors were exposed may have increased the incidence of the condition. Immigrants and refugees who came to Israel from East Africa and Yemen - whether decades ago or more recently - may have been at increased risk of undernutrition during pregnancy, affecting both the mother and consequently the offspring. This malnutrition may be further exacerbated by rapid overfeeding in the adopted developed country. This problem was also recognized at the turn of the 21st century in poor and underdeveloped countries and is becoming a global public health issue. In this review, the risks for premature metabolic syndrome and bone demineralization are enumerated and preventive measures outlined.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Israel Medical Association Journal (IMAJ), 19(4), p. 203-206||Publisher:||Israel Medical Association||Place of Publication:||Israel||ISSN:||1565-1088
