Abstract : The attainment of peak bone mass during the premenopausal years is critical in preventing osteoporosis later in life. The purpose of this study was to survey 1,000 active duty military premenopausal women in regards to skeletal health habits such as current levels of calcium intake, exercise, smoking, alcohol intake, menstrual regularity, and parity. We further wished to measure bone density in a subset of 100 women to determine which factors correlated best with optimal peak bone mass.
