Q: What is the second largest organ in human body?
A: The Bone

Yup, bone is considered as an organ.

Do you know; the peak of bone growth is when you are in 25 years old to 30 years old. After that your bone (bone mass) will start deteriorating 1% each year.

And for women the risk for osteoporosis is higher due to menopause that causes reduce of estrogen. Furthermore, pregnant mother also loss some amount of her calcium due to being taken by the fetus (her child).

So how to prevent early bone loss? The solution is the drink milk, or to store calcium in your body before you reach 30 years old. The early the better. After that, when you reach 30 years and above, the calcium that you consume will not properly absorb by your bone. Unless, the you took Vitamin D to enhance the calcium absorption.
