From the age of 50, one in three women and one in five men will have an osteoporosis-related fracture for the rest of their lives1,2 and one in three people have excess cholesterol3. #ProtectUrLife has been designed to raise awareness and prevent the risks of these diseases, as they can lead to a loss of autonomy and increased dependency. Based on a scientific approach, this initiative combines the behavioural approach and technological tools for a better protection of your heart and your bones.
