It makes the bones weaker and breakable.  Thus, increasing the risk of fractures, mainly in wrist, hip, and spinal vertebrae.  The development of bone tissues continues until late 30’s and then starts reducing rapidly. If it reduces rapidly, it results in osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is largely seen among females as compared to males, mainly after menopause that decreasing estrogen in the body.
