Older adults might be more inclined to use walkers and canes if they understood the relation between falls and premature death, according to one bone specialist.

Not just hip fracture in women over 70, but ANY FRACTURE (other than fingers and toes) in a YOUNGER COHORT (average 63) DOUBLES MORTALITY risk in both MEN & WOMEN.
