New Delhi, Oct 18 (ANI): Participating in sports during childhood and adolescence can give long-term benefits for bone mass at 20 years of age. A recent study, performed at Curtin University, followed 984 children into young adulthood. Males who were 'consistent sport participators' from ages 5-17 years had significantly greater whole body and leg bone mineral content at age 20 years than those who dropped out of sport, whereas males who 'joined sports' had significantly greater leg bone mineral content than those who dropped out of sports. Same was the case with women as well.
