Discusses the controversies surrounding osteoporosis as a "disease" that is trumpeted by drug companies, front-line advocacy groups and clinicians that stands to destroy the lives of tens of millions of postmenopausal women. In this latest revision of the 2003 eidtion, the author expands her focus to include those with osteopenia or low bone density who are taking osteoporosis drugs. Sanson maintains that these drugs "offer minimal (if any) benefit amidst ever-increasing evidence for serious harm, but they continue to be widely prescribed while massive profits roll in for the companies that produce them.”
