New Osteoporosis Drug May Increase Heart Attack Risk, Genetic Study Reveals


Concerning new research is highlighting potential health hazards for women who take romosozumab, a new anti-osteoporosis drug. Researchers from the University of Bristol say using the medication to treat the bone disease could lead to a heart attack.


Romosozumab is not the only osteoporosis drug that has been found to cause dangerous side effects. Another type of medication commonly used to treat the disease, bisphosphonate drugs, has actually been shown to weaken bones and cause osteonecrosis of the jaw. Other known adverse effects of bisphosphonates include gastrointestinal problems, fever, severe musculoskeletal pain, low calcium levels, cancer of the esophagus, and atrial fibrillation (a type of irregular heartbeat).

In contrast to these dangerous drugs, Dr, Rath’s Cellular Medicine research offers an effective, safe alternative approach for the prevention and control of osteoporosis. By supplying optimum amounts of specific micronutrients that are needed to build and maintain healthy bones, the deficiencies that are the root cause of the disease can be directly addressed.

While many people mistakenly believe that vitamin D and calcium are the only micronutrients needed for healthy bones, this overlooks the fact that the framework of the bone on which calcium and other minerals are deposited is made of a protein – collagen. Without healthy collagen, bone cannot form or function properly. Healthy bone formation therefore depends not only on having sufficient amounts of calcium and vitamin D, but more importantly on a proper supply of vitamin C, the amino acids lysine and proline, and other collagen-supporting micronutrients.

Additional micronutrients needed for healthy bones include vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin K, folic acid, magnesium, potassium, zinc, manganese, boron, iodine, and silica.
