1997 Bone density and risk of hip fracture in men and women Cross sectional analysis (Visit this link)

BMJ 1997;315:221-225 (26 July) Chris E D H De Laet, Ben A van Hout, Huibert Burger, Albert Hofman, Huibert A P Pols
Conclusions: The risk of hip fracture by age and bone density is similar in men and women. The decrease in bone density associated with age makes a limited contribution to the exponential increase of the risk of hip fracture with age.
