New Cancer Risks with Osteoprorsis Drugs

 Dear Readers ~  It saddens me to think about how many of you are facing the crippling disease of Osteoporosis with hopes that a pill will come along to fix it for you.

As you know, I am not a doctor; however, I know that multiple factors contribute to the disease. Heredity is one and body acidity is another.  Basically what happens when your body is acidic is that your blood will grab calcium from your bones to help alkalize things. We know that certain foods make your body more acidic (meat, grains, sugar, etc) and this acid environment is a perfect breeding ground for many diseases, including cancer.

So that brings us to the latest "remedy" provided by the pharmaceutical world - a little pill that will reverse osteoporosis. Remember what happened with Fosamax and how everyone stopped taking it? The new drugs are just a variation of the same basic chemicals. Here is the latest research on these new drugs from

4 Signs of Stroke You Need to Know

The 4 simple signs to look for in a possible stroke: (STRS)
1. Ask the person to SMILE
2. Ask the person to TALK - a simple sentence spoken coherently
3. Ask the person to RAISE BOTH ARMS over their head
4. Ask the person to STICK OUT THEIR TONGUE - should be straight, not to the side.

If ANY ONE of these is a problem for the person, call 911 immediately. Doctors tell us if we can get the person the proper care within 3 hours, ALL SIGNS OF THE STROKE CAN BE REVERSED!!

People die all the time because we don't know what to look for.
Another problem is that the person may trip, fall or just drop something and become embarrassed. They brush off your concern and seem to be OK. Remember - any ONE of the above signs can signal a stroke so insist on getting them to do the test. Laugh about it - tell them you are just practicing and they can be your guinea pig - whatever you need to do.

I know of a woman who tripped and fell at a party. People were concerned. She blamed it on being clumsy and brushed it off. Several hours later she was dead. She had suffered a stroke.

Remember S-T-R-S (think stress). Smile - Talk - Raise arms - Stick out tongue.

Be well ~
