    Compared to meat eaters, vegans / vegetarian / pescatarians have higher risk of fractures

    The study just hit major news outlets and is generating a lot of "controversy". Why putting that word in quotes? Because, as I mentioned in several other posts, that word has become a euphemism for "embarrassing truth" that mainstream medicine (and often society at large) will do just about...

    Aspirin - A New Osteoporosis Drug

    A study published almost a decade ago made the bold claim that aspirin may be a novel drug for osteoporosis. [Effect of aspirin administration for the treatment of osteoporosis in ovariectomized rat model]. - PubMed - NCBI However, the study did not get much traction and was in fact mocked by...

    Humans Have A 'salamander-like' Ability To Regrow Cartilage

    The title says it all, but the study authors make the unfortunate/handicapped conclusion that while we may very well be able to regrow cartilage, we cannot regrow limbs. Well, multiple animal studies I posted in the last beg to disagree and point to both high metabolism and progesterone as...

    Osteocalcin, Not Adrenaline, Drives Fight Or Flight Response

    article of september 2019: Bone, not adrenaline, drives fight or flight response When faced with a predator or sudden danger, the heart rate goes up, breathing becomes more rapid, and fuel in the form of glucose is pumped throughout the body to prepare an animal to fight or flee. These...

    Osteoporosis Is Caused By Mitochondrial Dysfunction Driven By Nitric Oxide (NO)

    Let’s repeat the mantra one more time – structure and function cannot be separated, they are mutually dependent at every level of reality/life. As such, it is little surprise (to us) that a structural disorder like osteoporosis may be caused by a deficiency in energy production. Yet, despite...

    Estrogen Is NOT Needed For Muscle / Bone Growth And Anabolism

    I have had my eye on posting this study for at least 3 years now but something more important always came up, so I kept putting it off. However, the recent thread posted on the forum about how estrogen is "essential" for health convinced me it is way overdue that I post something on this topic...

    Pregnenolone Is Anabolic For Bones

    So much for pregnenolone being an inactive steroid. The study below shows that even very low concentrations of pregnenolone are high anabolic for the bone and its effects are comparable to those of potent steroids like DHT or the well-known androgenic-anabolic steroid (AAS) commonly known as...

    Positive Effect Of H1 Antihistamines On Bone Density

    Anti-histamine Therapy and Bone Mineral Density: Analysis in a Population-Based U.S. Sample Background Histamine may play an important role in bone turnover. The data regarding histamine receptor antagonists (H1RA, H2RA) and bone mineral density in humans are sparse. We examined bone mineral...

    Low DHEA-S Predicts Fractures In Older Men

    There is a big push to start treating older men with estrogen, just as women are, because estrogen is "good for the bone". No evidence exists to support this approach and in fact multiple studies in women have shown that low DHEA, and not estrogen, is what is associated with weak bones. In...

    Fructose Is The Only Sugar Associated With Body Weight And Bone Health (in Infants)

    Another study suggesting fructose is probably not the villain we are led to believe it is, at least in infants. Fructose in Breast Milk Is Positively Associated with Infant Body Composition at 6 Months of Age "...Dietary sugars have been shown to promote excess adiposity among children and...

    Vitamin K And D Reverse Muscle Aging, May Act Like Sports Doping Agents

    Vitamin D and K have a primary role in bone metabolism, together with calcium and the androgenic hormones. Ray has written about the importance of these vitamins not only for bone health but also for insulin sensitivity and accelerating deactivation of estrogen. Many of these beneficial effects...

    SSRI (Prozac) Drugs Cause Irreversible Bone Loss

    Ray has written about the detrimental effects of serotonin on bone health and how serotonin antagonist could be a potential treatment for osteoporosis. This study confirms Ray's points and shows that drug Prozac (and possible other SSRIs) causes irreversible bone loss. Selective Serotonin...

    Effect of Two-Year Caloric Restriction on Bone Metabolism and Bone Mineral Density in Non-obese Youn

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26332798 Abstract Although caloric restriction (CR) could delay biologic aging in humans, it is unclear if this would occur at the cost of significant bone loss. We evaluated the effect of prolonged CR on bone metabolism and bone mineral density (BMD) in...
