Exposes the other side of the debate about bone mineral density testing and reviews evidence-based literature to uncover some facts about BMD testing and osteoporosis that have not received public attention. Suggests that testing may actually misdirect treatment efforts "away from the majority of women who will ultimately suffer fractures," by focussing attention on the minority with low bone mineral density.
