OSTEOARTHRITIS – FACT OR FICTION: DO JOINTS WEAR DOWN AS YOU AGE?

Do you have joint pain? Has your doctor told you it’s normal “wear and tear” or that it’s just part of aging?

We’re here to tell you that joint pain isn’t “normal” wear and tear, nor is it part of the aging process. Joint pain is damage to tissues or an inflammatory process and isn’t something you just have to live with because you’re getting older.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CHOLESTEROL

One of the most perplexing questions in the medical community is how such smart people got it so wrong when it comes to cholesterol and heart disease. There are two books that document what some people call the multibillion dollar “farce” in detail and in truth. There’s more money, politics, drama and ego documented in “The Big Fat Surprise” by Nina Teicholz and “Good Fats Bad Fats” by Gary Taubs to last any one interested in a good health saga a few months of good reading.
