Product Description
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.This revised edition provides important information about the latest studies and the newest drugs on the market.* A diagnosis of low bone density is not a good predictor of fracture. Most fractures occur in those who have bone density in the normal range. * New U.S. osteoporosis screening recommendations target the majority of women over the age of 50, effectively turning millions of healthy women into patients.* The U.S. National Osteoporosis Foundation predicts an epidemic of osteoporosis by 2025 but hip fracture rates are falling, and have been for the last 3 decades.* Osteoporosis drugs carry serious risks and side effects and do not benefit the majority of people who take them. * Diagnoses have skyrocketed in recent decades, yet the mortality rate from osteoporosis remains largely unchanged.“…Sanson approaches the topic of osteoporosis with insight and wisdom...” - Journal of the American Medical Association. “At last a carefully-researched, comprehensive, and easy-to-read account of the world-wide marketing of osteoporosis as a killer disease in order to manufacture patients for the sale of drugs”. - Barbara Seaman 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.A diagnosis of low bone density is not a good predictor of fracture.

#509 Anisogamy: The Beginning of Male and Female
This week we discuss how the sperm and egg came to be, and how a difference of reproductive interest has led to sexual conflict in bed bugs. We'll be speaking with Dr. Geoff Parker, an evolutionary biologist credited with developing a theory to explain the evolution of two sexes, about anisogamy, sexual reproduction through the fusion of two different gametes: the egg and the sperm. Then we'll speak with Dr. Roberto Pereira, research scientist in urban entomology at the University of Florida, about traumatic insemination in bed bugs.
