Mammals use an internal skeleton for tissue anchoring, weight bearing support, internal organ protection, and storage of calcium and is the main location housing red blood cell production. Our adult skeleton is completely renewed every 10 years without loss of any of these functions. It is no wonder that alterations in our skeleton resulting from aging, disease or trauma result in major medical symptoms and loss of quality of life. My research program aims to uncover novel aspects of how bone tissues form, grow and repair. With such new pre-clinical information, it is hoped that new diagnostic or therapeutic procedures will be built on these principles to improve disorders of metabolic bone disease or fracture healing.
While the FDA has often been criticized for its caution in relation to various drugs, including anabolic steroids and pro-hormone supplements, in the case of Lipostabil it’s doing the right thing. Lipostabil is just another example of people looking for an easy way to lose bodyfat without being willing to exert themselves in the gym or go on a diet. Lipostabil is also an example of the greed of some medical practitioners and nonmedical entrepreneurs who are willing to make a buck at the expense of the health of their patients and customers.
