Talented medical journalist, author, and managing editor of Longevity Medicine Review, Lara Pizzorno, joins us here at Natural Health Science News about a topic dear to Lara’s heart. She has recently authored the book Your Bones to let us know her own educational experience to address the challenge of her challenge of less than strong bones and the science to back up the fact you can have strong bones for life-naturally. Lara shares with us that strong bones are more than just calcium and your lifestyle choices can help keep bones strong even though a family history may predispose otherwise.

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 “No!” 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.
