    Default Alert - Oral Biphosphonates Increase Risk Of Macular Degeneration

    Vivian Goldschmidt
    No date

    Today is World Osteoporosis Day, an awareness campaign organized by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) since 1997. This year’s campaign slogan is: “Love Your Bones – Protect Your Future,” intended to encourage people to adopt a healthful lifestyle and discuss the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases with their doctor.
    The problem with this “early intervention” approach is that an osteoporosis or osteopenia diagnosis quickly turns into a prescription for an osteoporosis drug, usually a bisphosphonate such as alendronate (Fosamax), ibandronate (Boniva), risedronate (Actonel), pamidronate (Aredia), or zoldedronic acid (Reclast).

    It's a mite ironic that a story beginning, "Today is World Osteoporosis Day" is undated. Google tells me it's October 20. Why can't these bloggers date their posts? Am I picking nits again?

    Absolutely not, Islander. The date is often very important, and I can't count the times I've been frustrated when I want to know the date of an article or post but can't find it. I'm with you! (Though I've probably been guilty of it too.)
