National Osteoporosis Society (NOS)

Little book gets big launch for National Osteoporosis Society

NOS little book "A Skeleton Guide to a Healthy You"

On 28 February 2002, the NOS launched the first ever little book of information written by a UK charity at The Ritz Hotel, London.

Capitalising on the success of the many different mini books available today such as The Little Book of Calm and The Little Book of Stress the NOS' mini book is an A-Z guide to a healthy diet and lifestyle with a focus on bone health.

A Skeleton Guide to a Healthy You, Vitamins and Minerals is a light hearted 'kitchen drawer' companion to all the essential vitamins and minerals needed for a healthy diet.

It also contains information on exercise, useful facts and figures, tips on healthy living and a useful recipes section which naturally, concentrates on foods which are beneficial to bone health. It is suitable for everyone of all ages.

At the moment the little book is available to buy through the NOS Trading Company for £2.25 inc postage and packing.

NOS President Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles, who has written the foreword to the book says in the publication, “This little book aims to set you on the right route and to act as a quick A to Z guide to all the vitamins and minerals that can help keep your bones and your body healthy.”

Director of the National Osteoporosis Society, Linda Edwards said, “We hope that through this little book we can help inform everyone, young and old, about the importance of a healthy lifestyle. One in three women and one in twelve men, over the age of fifty, will be affected by osteoporosis.”

“A Skeleton Guide to a Healthy You, Vitamins and Minerals” is published by Cameron Wilson Ltd.

For information on stockists, or to receive a copy of the book, priced at £2, excluding postage and packing, please contact the National Osteoporosis Society on (+44) 1761 471 771.
