good health news for Americans, a replacement government study finds that hip fracture rates have fallen

substantially since the 1970s. Between 1970 and 2010, broken hips dropped by two-thirds among

Americans during a decades-long health study. The likely reason? Researchers say drops in both smoking

and heavy drinking played a big role. The improvement was true for both women and men, researchers

found, and therefore the biggest change was seen among the foremost elderly people. Early on within the

study period, people aged 85 to 89 were suffering broken hips at a rate of two ,018 per 100,000 people per

annum . That eventually fell to 759 fractures per 100,000 people per annum .
