NPR did a great analysis of how a "normal" status quo state of being was turned into a disease that needs to be treated. I suppose all for a good cause (Osteoporosis.) But, especially in light of the whole Health Care Reform debate, it is pretty frightening that Osteopenia has now been labeled a disease, and millions of women are taking medication for it. Originally, neither testing nor treatment was not covered by insurance. But a large "ethical drug company" (ironic name, hmmm?) convinced the government that it was a disease and should be covered by insurance. Listen to the story. It's worth it. And makes you wonder how many other "normal conditions" are driving up the cost of health care.
And, as backup, I found THIS on YouTube.
