STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Internationally, osteoporosis affects 1 in 10 women aged 60; 2 in 10 women aged 70; 4 in 10 women aged 80; and two-thirds of women aged 90. Across Europe, the rate of prevalence among men ranges between 6.7% and 6.9%

Statin Disaster, Heart Disease and Magnesium – Change in Cholesterol Recommendations

There is not enough evidence to support the practice of western medicine as it is presently practiced. The entire system of medicine in the United States is broken, not only because the toxic medicines they use kill so many people but also because the insurance programs that fund expensive medicine do not work as effective payment systems.
