Osteoporosis is a debilitating loss of bone mass primarily affecting women but can affect men too. People of all ages need information on osteoporosis preventing activities to increase bone density and prevent the development of crippling effects of osteoporosis. The purpose of this descriptive study was to examine topics on osteoporosis published in popular magazines. Using theoretical principles of adult education as a guide, a content analysis for risk factors and osteoporosis preventing behaviors was conducted. Preliminary findings revealed that over a twelve year span (1986 to 1998), 25 journals were reviewed covering 155 articles. The publications with frequent citations were; Prevention (77), Saturday Evening Post (26), Good Housekeeping (21), and New Woman (20). Popular topics were dietary calcium intake, exercise, risk factors, hormonal replacement therapy, menopause, and diagnosis/bone density scan. Nurses need to be aware that a main source of osteoporosis information is found in lay publications. Evaluation of the accuracy, breadth and depth of the content is needed. Such information is crucial to provide the most effective patient education information.
