Sally Field Shares Advice For Women Who Are Delaying Their Bone Density Test (VIDEO)

Sally Field describes what she would say to a woman who is putting off her bone density test.

Sally Field:
If you can get a bone density test, if it’s part of your health care system and you can afford it, then you must do it.

You are absolutely foolish to do it, as you must get all the other screening that is available to you; the screenings that are available to detect all of the terrible things that could happen, from heart disease to cancers. You have to do that to take care of yourself and that bone density test is right up there with them.

This is how you move into this part of your life to stay upright and stay alive and stay vital and stay important to your children and your grandchildren because you have a whole lot to give to them. They need you to be there. Your grandchildren need you to be there in their lives.
