What if everything your doctor told you about osteoporosis and osteopenia was wrong?
What if osteoporosis were not the primary cause of fractures in aging populations? What if both the definitions of osteoporosis and osteopenia used to justify pharmaceutical treatment were both misleading and age inappropriate?
These are questions we explored in a previous exposé titled, “Osteoporosis Myth: The Dangers of High Bone Mineral Density,” wherein we explored evidence showing the so-called “osteoporosis epidemic” is not an evidence-based concept but a manufactured one designed to serve the interests of a growing industrial medical/pharmaceutical complex.
Now, a powerful new paper published in the Journal of Internal Medicine titled, “Osteoporosis: the emperor has no clothes,” confirms that the primary cause of what are normally labeled “osteoporotic fractures” are falls and related modifiable lifestyle factors and not osteoporosis, i.e. abnormally “porous” or low-density bones.
