(HealthCastle.com) We were always told to drink milk to prevent osteoporosis. But how many of us really care about osteoporosis? Not young women, researchers found! UBC School of Health and Exercise Sciences' Assistant Professor Dr. May Jung learnt from her previous study that young women couldn't relate to the osteoporosis prevention messaging. Instead, Dr. Jung reported that age and gender-appropriate messaging is important when it comes to dairy intake. She found that proper messaging can successfully change behavior for at least 12 months.
After publishing the above study last year in scientific journal Psychology and Health, Dr. Jung is now moving on to study adults aged 30 to 50 years old and she needs your help! In her initial focus group investigation, she learnt that adults also don't relate too much with osteoporosis prevention when it comes to dairy intake. Dr. Jung is ready to move to the next phase of her case study. Now, she is looking for men to participate and I'm happy to help her recruit!
