Choose your parents well. Their genetics mix to form your genetics. Your genetics play a large role in determining your potential strengths and weaknesses. However, what you do with your potential is up to you.
We all wish we could be something we are not, and never can be. That is completely natural, but not helpful. You have to play the hand you were dealt. You have to take control of your future, and you can.
If your parents had great bones, you probably will too – as long as you take care of them with Calcium, Vitamin D, Protein, Exercises, Balance, and Avoid Smoking.
If your parents crumbled into kyphosis (humpback) or broke a hip, due to osteoporosis, you better get working on what you can control as early as possible. You will probably need medications eventually, but starting on natural treatments early enough can delay that need for years.
If you Take Control Naturally of what you can control early enough, you can achieve many years of fracture free life. That’s as good as it gets.
