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.

Best Article on Osteoporosis I’ve Ever Read

April 3, 2012

Yes, this article is technical.

Yes, I had to stretch my mind to grok the technical details….however, the bulk of the article is easily understandable, and the conclusions reached are VERY interesting, cutting edge, you read it first here.  All that I’ve been studying about fruit and vegetable consumption, alkalinity, exercise, importance of co-factors not calcium, and inflammation as the precursor to just about everything “bad” is researched here with lots of studies cited. Major conclusions: taking lots of calcium is not the most important factor for healthy bones and bone density tests are just about worthless (and even worse are the drugs prescribed).

Instead of the mainstream (and that includes most alternative info as well) message of more calcium = strong bones, this heavily researched article shows the value of other minerals, a plethora of “nutraceuticals” (supplements besides vitamins and minerals) and “lifestyle” habits that all contribute to healthy bones in a healthy body.
