Does this have a "hidden" genetic and epigenetic link?

Too much visceral fat may increase a woman’s risk of developing osteoporosis, according to a study presented Tuesday at the annual meeting of the RSNA.  (Radiological Society of North America)

Also look at the main page from the RSNA especially the subtitle on the banner.  :)

visceral fat is a post menopausal thing as it helps to store estrogen...bone loss is estrogen related as decreased levels secrete more calcium from bone...epigenetically, these woman may have not exercised much as kids and drank a lot of phosphorous colas or if A's were meat eaters and ate very little phytoestrogens from plants. Also their location to the equater and vitamin D is another factor.

I knew that weights, superslow and a little fat are the best osteoporosis protection with vit D and K , and I thought also an half pound on my waist was good for it (20 or 21 BMI with large shoulders, but all other bones as wrists and ankles are thin) ???

I had understood from the informal education that I received through the Marguerite Bourgeoys Family Centre that the one of the estrogens and progesterone worked to  control bone growth.  One of the hormones regulated bone construction and the other bone deconstruction.  Bones are constatly being built up and being broken down in structre - which is why a break will heal if the parts are kept together.  Before penicilin, breaking a bone was much less dangerous that getting a cut.

Progesterone builds and a particular estrongen disolves (with my memory, it might well be the reverse) so managing the balance between the two hormones is key to avoiding post memopausal bone density loss.  Apart from working to manage the hormones, nutrition supplies the both processes directly.

which is why the removal of all estrogen-producing belly fat from a menopausal/postmenopausal woman increases her risk of osteoporosis. Many GYNs recommend that their too-thin patients approaching menopause put on a couple of pounds of fat, convinced of those statistics. :)

I have nearly a pound more just on my waist hope it helps ! Sesam butter and fruit only preserves, as a little of organic Corn  pasta and bread made it, together as polyflora A  and good will in cooking. Ghee and Teacher cheeses as well !
