There are many drugs available to treat osteoporosis. However, all of them have potential serious side-effects. For example, popular anti-osteoporosis drugs such as Fosamax, Actonel and Boniva can cause melting away of the jaw bones as well as unusual fractures of the leg bones. Forteo has the potential side-effect of bone cancer. In comparison, vitamin D is very effective in the treatment as well as prevention of osteoporosis. Vitamin D is safe, cheap and readily available. Therefore, make sure you have an optimal level of vitamin D to keep your bones healthy. Refer to my book, “Power of Vitamin D” to learn how to obtain an optimal level of vitamin D safely without the risk of toxicity.
