The Myth of Osteoporosis
Gillian Sanson
0972123342
June 1, 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
"Gill Sanson's book is a well-researched breath of fresh air that will help women everywhere better trust the wisdom of their bodies." -- Christiane Northrup, M.D. The Myth of Osteoporosis is a research-based work that provides clear insight into the myths of osteoporosis. These myths motivate both patient and physician into a lifetime of unnecessary testing and drug therapy — therapy that can in fact be life-threatening. Gillian Sanson's well-documented explanation of these myths can spare women great anxiety. She takes the fear out of aging and restores women's sense of control over their bodies. She gives women good reasons for challenging the common way that osteoporosis is handled in the United States and in many other industrialized nations.

Food and Our Bones: The Natural Way to Prevent Osteoporosis
Annemarie Colbin
0452278066
July 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Why take hormones and supplements to ward off osteoporosis--the bone-thinning disease that many postmenopausal women worry about--when you can get calcium and other nutrients needed for healthy bones from eating the right foods? That's the message from Annemarie Colbin, a food therapist who authored a previous book, Food and Healing. While she acknowledges some people would rather pop pills than go to the trouble of cooking healthy foods, she argues her philosophy persuasively.

First, Colbin describes foods that studies suggest may weaken the bones, such as caffeine and tomatoes. Then she presents evidence for bone-strengthening foods, going beyond the conventional wisdom that dairy products are the best way to get dietary calcium. In fact, she writes, the Chinese vegetable bok choy provides the most calcium per calorie...



Beautiful Bones Without Hormones
Leon Root

Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Hippocrates said, "Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food." Root, an orthopedic surgeon, agrees with this advice and presents compelling evidence as to why it's true. Osteoporosis, often called "the silent killer," affects both men and women. And it's common: "more than twice as many Americans die from complications resulting from hip fractures [due to osteoporosis] than from car accident fatalities." Root describes the disease and offers illustrations to emphasize its impact on the body. He explains who is at risk and why and includes ways to reduce risk factors. Although osteoporosis is commonly considered "a little old lady's disease," the author points out that the average American woman now lives at least one-third of her life after menopause. Thus, she'd be wise to prepare for that stage of...

Book Description
Osteoporosis is indeed a global threat because every human being is vulnerable and subject to it as time goes by. The authors point out the enormous scale of the problem in terms of human suffering, morbidity and mortality on the one hand and the astronomical national costs on the other. The book is up-beat and optimistic with a touch of humour; it is scientifically based but provides easy-to-follow guidelines for lifelong maintenance of skeletal structure and function. Osteoporosis is preventable, if doctors want to, and every doctor can contribute. Bone is every doctor's and every body's business.
