Faculty note: Prof. Pearson published research
“Since vitamin K is so integral to good bone health, it is natural to assume that it may be used to treat certain bone problems. Research by the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay found that vitamin K has a positive effect on bone mineral density and decreases fracture risk. The research was recently published in The Science of Eating. UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Deb Pearson (Human Biology) is behind the research.
