A recent landmark Canadian study confirmed that men are as likely to get this bone disease as women. Maureen's studio guests are David Kirk who discovered he had osteoporosis when he fell off a ladder and broke two vertebrae in his spine, and Dr. Rick Adachi, a rheumatologist and the study's lead author. Dr. Paul Caldwell explains about ' blood-letting' and taking blood samples.
