Osteoporosis “Myth”

August 3, 2012

My current pet peeve with the allopathic model is that it equates “early detection” with “prevention.” Then the following article crossed my desk, and I may have a new pet peeve: the manufacture of  a disease that is actually a natural phenomenon of aging….And we all do want strong, healthy bones, just not the way the allopathic model says is “best.”

HIGH BONE MINERAL DENSITY AND BREASR CANCER

One of the most important facts about bone mineral density, conspicuously absent from discussion, is that having higher-than-normal bone density in middle-aged and older women actually INCREASES their risk of breast cancer by 200-300%, and this is according to research published in some of the world’s most well-respected and authoritative journals, e.g. Lancet, JAMA, NCI. (see citations below).

While it has been known for at least fifteen years that high bone density profoundly increases the risk of breast cancer — and particularly malignant breast cancer — the issue has been given little to no attention, likely because it contradicts the propaganda expounded by mainstream woman’s health advocacy organizations. Breast cancer awareness programs focus on x-ray based breast screenings as a form of “early detection,” and the National Osteoporosis Foundation’s entire platform is based on expounding the belief that increasing bone mineral density for osteoporosis prevention translates into improved quality and length of life for women.

The research, however, is not going away, and eventually these organizations will have to acknowledge it, or risk losing credibility.
