Increased life expectancy on the one hand and dramatically reduced physical activity in daily life on the other hand are characteristic features of postmodern life. Consequently Homo sapiens in Industrialized countries but also in threshold countries, is increasingly confronted with the problems associated with accelerated bone loss, osteoporosis and osteoporosis related fractures. On major risk factor of osteoporosis and low bone mass is physical inactivity. Bone loss and osteoporosis however are mainly focused on from clinical viewpoint. In the present review a bioanthropological perspective of the phenomenon physical inactivity and osteoporosis is provided. The problem is discussed from the viewpoint of life history theory, but also from the viewpoint of evolutionary biology, especially evolutionary medicine and paleopathology.
