A new study by the University of Exeter in Britain found that playing soccer can improve bone development in adolescent boys. Dr. Luis Gracia-Marco of the University of Exeter, said in a press release, "Once a person reaches puberty, the next five years are vitally important in this respect." Researchers followed 116 boys age 12 to 14 for a year taking several measurements of bone mineral content, or BMC. After one year, soccer players had higher BMC compared to swimmers and cyclists with a 7 percent higher BMC at the lumbar spine and a 5 percent higher BMC at the femoral neck.
