Male Menopause
Why is it only women who have to worry about osteoporosis as they get older?

One reason may be that male menopause, sometimes called andopause, comes later and is a lot slower than menopause in women.

But it may also be, according to the journal Endocrine-Related Cancer, a matter of estrogen production.

After menopause, women still produce estrogen -- in breast tissue, where it doesn't do much good. But men also produce estrogen -- in bones, where it helps prevent osteoporosis.
