Recent Study Confirms That Osteoporosis Drugs Are Useless
The mainstream medical approach to osteoporosis is flawed. It focuses only on improving bone density numbers while turning a blind eye to other crucial bone health components. As long as a bone scan shows even slightly better numbers after a course of osteoporosis drugs, the treatment is said to be “successful.”
Fortunately, “Savers” already know that bone health is about a lot more than just density. In fact, how fast you lose and replace bone can be a more accurate predictor of your bone health.
A recent study, which (not surprisingly) has been completely ignored by the Medical Establishment, confirms this very clearly. In fact, if doctors would know about this study, they would immediately understand that osteoporosis drugs can actually do more harm than good – and I’m not referring to the side effects here.
Before we get into the details of this fascinating study, here’s a quick refresher about…
Bone Turnover: the Rate of Renewal
I know it sounds contradictory – how can bone loss indicate healthy bones? It has to do with how bone renews itself.
If you already have the Save Our Bones Program, you’re familiar with this premise: that for your bones to be strong and healthy, they need to replace old bone cells with new ones. This is where bone loss is vital. This process is called the “turnover rate” or bone remodeling, and it’s essential to the quality of your bones.
Osteoporosis drugs stop this process, so the bones end up packed full of old, worn bone cells that normally would have been shed. Yes, these worn-out cells “count” toward higher numbers on the bone scan, but they are not healthy cells.
Finally! Study Confirms Importance of Bone Turnover
The University of Eastern Finland published an intriguing study that affirms the importance of bone turnover. The study participants were children, but the principle of bone quality and renewal applies to all ages.
Looking at bone samples on a microscopic level, researchers studied changes in the children’s bone cells that provided information about bone metabolism and remodeling. The authors of the study observed that “…various changes related to bone microarchitecture and turnover may be more important predictors of fracture risk than lowered bone mineral density alone.”1
In other words, bone density is not “all that” when it comes to bone health. Bone turnover rate is also indicative of bone quality and, subsequently, fracture risk.
The study goes on to point out the flaw in modern-day methods of osteoporosis diagnosis that focus solely on bone density:
“…the present diagnostics based on the measurement of bone mineral density predict fractures only moderately. In addition to decreased bone mineral density, changes in bone quality could explain increased fragility related to osteoporosis.”1 (emphasis mine)
Your Doctor Will Never Tell You This: Bone Quality is More Important than Bone Quantity
The Medical Establishment is far, far behind in this regard. As mentioned earlier, the impetus behind osteoporosis drugs was and is to increase bone density, period. Quantity, or the number of densely-packed bone cells, is the ultimate goal. This approach completely disregards the importance of bone turnover, tensile strength, and overall quality of bone.
From the get-go, the Save Our Bones Program offers the correct information:
“It makes sense to postulate that peak bone mass is not a true reflection of bone health and that attempting to accurately predict future fracture risk by mainly using bone density scores as an indicator may often lead to flawed conclusions.”
You may wonder if the Medical Establishment will embrace this latest news and seek out similar studies on postmenopausal women. Not likely. To do so would reveal how needless osteoporosis drugs are, and thus destroy Big Pharma’s hugely profitable osteoporosis drug industry.
“Savers” Are Way Ahead of the Game!
If you are following the Save Our Bones Program and keeping up with the latest information by subscribing to our e-mail updates, you have yet another reason to rejoice! You’re far ahead of the game, because you already know that “…there is a lot more to healthy bones than just bone density.”2 This Finnish study provides even more assurance that ditching drugs is the right move.
Don’t Get Me Wrong – Bone Density is Still Important
Please don’t misunderstand the message here – bone density has an important place in managing osteoporosis. But the key is to increase or maintain bone density and quality through drug-free methods, not density that’s artificially induced by dangerous medications and reduces the quality of bone.
Many in our community have increased their bone density following the Program, and if you’re not on the Program yet, you can too. I want to encourage you to read some of the inspiring testimonials on the Real Life Results page. You can read the personal stories of those who increased their bone density with the Save Our Bones Program.
Bone Quality Goes Hand-in-Hand with Bone Density
The Medical Establishment completely separates these two concepts, and they’re flat out wrong. Because bone quality and density are integral facets of overall bone health.
