Surrey Kinesiologist Says Being Fat Decreases Your Risk of Osteoporosis

This is king of like a hunh article.

Those over 127 have better bone density than those below. For those below 127, they should focus on more weight-bearing activities.

Being Overweight Reduces the Risk of Osteoporosis?

True: Weight has a powerful impact on bone mass. Because weight increases the load on your skeleton, bones compensate by growing stronger to support the weight. But the benefit isn't an excuse to gain weight or not to lose weight, for those who are overweight. Instead, thinner or smaller adults -who have weighed less than 127 pounds for much of their lives - tend to have lower bone density and may want to emphasize weight-bearing exercise such as walking or jogging to increase their skeletal load.
