Why football is good for children@peak performance

The football players exhibited greater bone mineral content (BMC) in the legs and greater bone mineral density (BMD) in all bone-loaded regions at the end of the study compared to age matched controls. More specifically, they gained twice as much femoral neck and intertrochanteric BMC in the legs than the controls and increased their femoral neck BMD by 10% more and their mean hip BMD by a third more than the control group.
