    Default Osteoporosis Is Scurvy of the Bone, Not Calcium Deficiency

    It saddens me to see older women diagnosed with "osteopenia" or "osteoporosis" listening to their doctors and taking supplemental calcium and even problematic drugs called bisphosphonates. These are irrational, dogmatic, harmful approaches to the problem of degrading bone as we age. In my time practicing nephrology and internal medicine, I saw numerous patients suffering from vascular disease while taking the recommended doses of calcium. X-rays revealed perfect outlines of calcified blood vessels and calcified heart valves. http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/ost...ium-deficiency

    More women than men suffer with osteoporosis. Experts say its related to hormonal changes after menopause. But, Vit. K2 is the key because it directs calcium to the teeth & bones, instead of allowing it to buildup in soft tissue and blood vessels. Shame the medical community does not understand the significant role nutrition plays in helping to prevent this condition.
