Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a joint disorder characterized by swelling.  A joint is an area of the body where two different bones meet. Joints are found in the knees, hips, fingers and other areas of the body that bend to ease movement. There are many types of arthritis, one of which is called osteoarthritis.

Your bones are for life. Look after them and they will carry you far.

Anton Mosimann, master chef

I know quite a few people with the illness osteoporosis. It’s very sad to see them suffering so much. I try to help with my food, with my ideas. Most important is proper eating, lots of calcium and vitamin D. Green vegetables, freshly cooked, full of color, full of flavor, full of taste. I think that’s very, very important. Enjoy life, eat well, and Bone Appétit.

Martin Yan, Master Chef

I’m very interested in helping to fight osteoporosis because many people, including my mother, suffer from this terrible disease. Eating foods high in calcium, like bok choy, cheese, and broccoli, can help reduce the risk of developing this disease. Use the right ingredients and choose foods that are good for the bones, your body and soul. Bone Appétit!
