Prevention is better than cure, as most doctors say. There are several natural preventive measures against osteoporosis, although some younger girls who may have received bisphosphonate treatment a little too early has sparked debate and instigated discussions among medical experts, as this also exposes them to unnecessary side effects of Fosamax and other similar drugs. It helps to be aware of these side effects, visit http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com for more related information.

This advice is well researched and very much needed by teenage girls since their prime bone building years are the times they need to take care of their bones the most in order to protect themselves from osteoporosis later in life.

Teen girls and young women in general need to increase bone health as much as they can because bone density is like saving up at the bank. The more you have while you're young, the lesser your chances of being diagnosed of osteoporosis and low-impact fractures. http://fosamaxlawsuit2012.edublogs.org
