Osteoporosis is a serious health concern and I'm always sorry when I hear about someone new being diagnosed with osteoporosis. But when a famous person chooses to share that diagnosis with the public as an opportunity to encourage others to take care of their bone health, it can be inspiring. Now Britt Elkand, a model and Bond girl (who was also married to Peter Sellers) has come forward with her own osteoporosis struggles. It is especially moving how candid she had been about her excessive dieting has contributed to her disease. Kudos to Ms. Ekland for her frank words, and best wishes as she fights to reclaim her health.
