Question Description

Research paper nine(9) pages of content when double spaced Plus one (1) page of references

Do not exceed nine pages of doublespaced content

Must be APA format

Find current research on older peoples health! This must be about people above 65 years of age!!!!! must be peer-reviewed articles silly example: according to the National health statistical bureau all 65+ year old women are at higher risk of breast cancer. (this is something I just made it up as an example please do not use this)

1 get the original article and review it (summery) around 1-2 page double spaced

2 critique the article pros and cons and your opinion around 1-2 page double spaced

3 after talking about the study find an older adult who somehow is either Suffering from the medical condition describing your article or meet all the criteria as of the articles but is not suffering from the medical conditions. Do a one page background information on how the adult fits into this articles criteria. around 1-2 page double spaced

4 interviewed the adult, write an indepth transcript of the review. ( this is the most important part) use quotes write down their feedback. Their opinion on how society generalizes and tried's to fit them into a pity box. (5-6 pages long double spaced)

Article summary
Nguyen, T. V., Center, J. R., & Eisman, J. A. (2000). Osteoporosis in elderly men and women:
effects of dietary calcium, physical activity, and body mass index. Journal of bone and
mineral research, 15(2), 322-331.
Nguyen, T. V., Center, J. R., & Eisman, J. A. (2000) assert in the article about
osteoporosis in elder men and women, discusses on the effects of physical activities, dietary
calcium and the index of body mass. Osteoporosis occurs in the body as a result of bones lacking
the required strength. The condition can lead to the body developing minor or major bumps
which have lower chances of reforming back to normal. However, osteoporosis is common to
older people especially between the age of 65 years and above. Older people who consume less
or no calcium at all are the ones who develop the condition mostly.
The article recommends a higher intake of calcium and being involved in often physical
exercises. A study involving 690 men and 1075 women who are aged 65 years and above was
performed in order to determine the association of bone mineral density (BMD) and the total
body mass index (BMI). Calcium intake in their bodies was inversely proportional to their age
while physical exercise was directly proposition (de Zepetnek, J. O. T., Giangregorio, L. M., &
Craven, B. C. 2009). This showed that the old people involved in physical exercise more than the
rate of calcium intake in their bodies.
Recently, research has proved that physicians can use body mineral density to determine
whether a person is at the risk of getting osteoporosis or not. Thus, body mineral density can be
regulated by body nutrition, surrounding factors, physical exercises and the number of gonadal
hormones in the body. The article shows that according to research, a large amount of calcium is


consumed by the skeleton thus making it difficult to determine the relationship between body
mass index and calcium intake in the body.
According to the article, recent research gives epidemiological evidence that frequent
physical exercise can prevent the body from osteoporosis thus giving the physicians ample time
to check osteoporosis progression in the body. Additionally, bone loss can be as a result of body
immobilization and weight loss. The article indicates that men are the most affected by the
condition than women. Reason being, women are involved in multiple household chores which is
a part of the physical exercise which reduces their chances of getting the disease.
Research carried out in New South Wales in Australia invited several older men and
women in the study of osteoporosis. The main subject was to state the amount of calcium that
they consume through the foods and fruits they consume each day. Researchers use milk which
has a higher content of calcium to figure out the amount of calcium t...
