caused by high sodium intake
sugar, which effects the calcium/phosphorus balance,
high phytic acid intake - bran (too much fiber)
& phosphoric acid - sodas depletes ca absorption
you can take a Vit D3 supp
this little vitamin also has MANY preventative properties

Vitamin D3, (cholecalciferol), is necessary for retaining bone density
and for maintaining the body's immunity
Vitamin D3, like all variations in the vitamin D family, is actually a hormone,
produced naturally in the body. Although very few foods contain vitamin D3,
it is readily available through the absorption of the sun's rays.
Few foods offer adequate Vitamin D3 but fish,
cod liver oil and eggs provide small amounts of the hormone.
Fortunately, supplements offer an alternative way
to increase the body's Vitamin D3 levels.
The American Society of Anesthesiologists released a report in October of 2007 that stated approximately one in four patients who have chronic pain issues were also found to have low levels of Vitamin D.
According to the Vitamin D Council, if you are someone who completely avoids the sun you will need to take approximately 4,000 units of Vitamin D per day. You would have to drink 40 glasses of milk a day or take 10 multivitamins a day to get the required amount of Vitamin D.
