A. Individuals who eat sufficient calcium run no risk of bone depletion in old age.

B. Individuals who do not undertake weight-bearing exercise have a high risk of experiencing bone depletion late in life.

C. Weight-lifting and intake of dietary calcium are the most effective methods of avoiding bone depletion.

D. A program of regular weight-bearing exercise and intake of dietary calcium allows some individuals to avoid one of the deleterious effects of aging.

E. Only weight-bearing exercise is necessary to build bone thickness, density, and strength
