Study links wrinkles to bone density loss in women

A story in the Vancouver Sun today suggests that we may be able to tell a woman’s risk of bone breakage based on the appearance of her face and neck. More wrinkles = more risk. The relationship is thought to be due to the fact that the level of proteins that affect women’s skin and bones are linked, so if a woman’s face and neck are severely wrinkled, she faces a higher risk of bone density loss.

So the answer to the question: “could wrinkles be any worse?” has just been answered with a loud and clear “Yes”.
