statins to reduce the risk of osteoporosis
You're going to hear more about using statins to reduce the risk of osteoporosis...in addition to heart disease.
New studies suggest that statins significantly reduce the risk of fractures in postmenopausal women. One study even shows a 50% decrease in hip fractures in women taking statins for at least a year.
Statins seem to increase bone density by stimulating bone GROWTH...instead of by slowing bone LOSS like estrogen and other osteoporosis drugs.
