Saturday Night Live pokes fun at our drug-oriented culture

In our society, it’s normal to take multiple medications every day. We have accepted a belief-system that medicines are our answer to a better, healthier life, while we eat ourselves into pain, suffering and a premature death. We treat preventable chronic diseases with medications instead of treating their causes. We are offered risky medication for osteoporosis and osteopenia, while proper exercise and Vitamin D sufficiency is ignored. We are bombarded by television commercials advertising the next drug that claims to ‘fix’ us, followed by a long list of potential side effects that we choose to ignore.

At least Saturday Night Live understands. This parody, is a take on the Boniva ad featuring Sally Field. Here we are introduced to Preniva – a drug you can take even if there’s nothing wrong with you!

Osteoporosis Raises Risk of Bone Fractures - You Need Osteoporosis Protection for Life!

No one wants creaky bones, but the number of hospitalizations for osteoporosis-related fractures has increased in the United States, jumping 55% since 1995. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality says more than 254,000 hospital stays are due to injuries stemming from osteoporosis.

That’s why Dr. Fuhrman made a DVD called Osteoporosis Protection for Life. In it he explains what you can do to keep your bones strong and healthy, with exercise, improved diet and supplements.

Most people mistakenly are led to believe that drugs are the answer to treating osteopenia and osteoporosis. However, studies reveal that the bisphosphonates, like Actonel, Fosamax, Boniva, and Reclast, commonly prescribed for osteoporosis, are not as effective as we have been led to believe. As more and more research data comes out about the long-term risks of these medications, we are finding out that they are more dangerous than we had previously thought.

I want to give people the information they need to put an effective plan into action. In this video, I offer my advice regarding diet, supplements, and exercise. I am joined by my wife, Lisa, and staff to demonstrate the best exercises to effectively build your strength and bone mass. We've even added a fun 15 minute workout to start you on your way. Now is the time to take control of your health destiny!
