Osteoporosis is an important issue in public health due both to its scale as well as to the social welfare repercussions that are associated with it. Because of the size of the issue it has been considered as the “silent epidemic of the 21st century”. The fractures that this process can produce are responsible for disabilities, hospital admissions, a reduction in quality of life and even death, in addition to the huge impact on health expenditure.
