Osteoporosis has become a common scourge, afflicting people-especially women-in ever-growing numbers. Yet osteoporosis drugs like Fosamax® or Boniva® are dangerous-not only do they actually increase your risk for bone fractures, they may also cause heart problems and kill bone tissue in your jaw! Are women genetically programmed to develop weak, brittle bones? The answer is an emphatic ôNo!ö Your Bones uncovers the real culprits responsible for the osteoporosis epidemic. It will not only teach you how to identify those factors in your life that are putting your bones at risk; it will also arm you with the cutting-edge information you need to prevent osteoporosis and maintain strong, healthy bones for life-naturally, relying on diet, supplements, and exercise. The photo is of me, Your Bones co-author Lara, aged 60, on a 2009 Mother's Day hike in Stehekin, Washington. I was diagnosed with osteopenia in my very early 50s. Today, I have strong, healthy bones, which I credit to having done everything recommended in this book. I am genetically at very high risk for osteoporosis, but now I will be the first woman in my family in all the generations I know about not to die an osteoporosis-related death. You too can have strong, healthy bones for life. Book jacket.
