the pharmaceutical companies coupled with doctors scam us all the time.
mundane reading and advice (within article) is par for the course.
individually, implement common sense and wisdom when eating and exercising. utilize self-moderation and self-discipline.

There are reports about this connection of GERD and osteoporosis. However, more studies are needed in order to have a full conclusion. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com/fe...

Sadly, this is confirmed by studies. GERD drugs do raise the risk of osteoporosis fractures. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com

When is western medicine going to start treating the problem instead of the symptom? Every week there is another negative side affect from rx meds.
Some are life saving I know, but more and more do more harm than good.
