About this title


Osteoporosis is the most common chronic disease in America for white females, with over 50 percent of these women suffering from it by age 45 and over 85 percent by age 70. Despite these numbers, little attention has been given to the disease and virtually none has been given to practical preventive treatment. Osteoporosis may be defined as a reduction in bone mass per unit volume such that fractures in bone may occur with minimal or no trauma. There are many causes for the disease but by far the most common form is known as post-menopausal osteoporosis. Too many doctors have accepted this disease as part of the normal aging process in women, and have been slow to accept or have rejected outright innovative treatments, particularly the use of anabolic-androgenic steroids. A leading medical expert examines the history of the osteoporosis epidemic and provides an overview of some treatment strategies, in this work.
