CWHN welcomes Gillian Sanson, author of The Myth of Osteoporosis: What Every Women Should Know About Creating Bone Health (MCD Century Publications, 2011).

We are told that osteoporosis now afflicts half of all women over the age of 50, making it more widespread than breast cancer, AIDS and heart disease combined. How do we get to such figures, and are they true? Sanson spent months digging through medical journals, asking questions of international experts and investigating the known effects of prescription treatments in her quest to learn more. Her research reveals a very different story from the one we had all accepted.
