Is David Letterman getting enough ascorbic acid?
Although many factors go into bone strength, one factor it has in common with heart disease is ascorbic acid. For more information on on this subject, see this page.
By the way, ascorbic acid is very hard on teeth. Linus Pauling recommended combining 1 part baking soda with 2 parts ascorbic acid in a small amount of water, so that it fizzes (I give it a couple of minutes) and the acidity is neutralized, before adding more water and drinking it.
