The ONE Diet You Should NEVER Start

When your back starts to go, EVERYTHING gets harder.

It’s a struggle to get out of bed… to walk up a flight of stairs… or even to climb in and out of your car.

Now, countless seniors with a common back injury are being talked into a “minimally invasive technique” that promises to have them up and about in no time.

If it sounds too good to be true… that’s because it is.

What you’re not being told is that this procedure could actually KILL you.

And even if it doesn’t, it probably won’t work.

Vertebroplasty is a common procedure used to stabilize a compression fracture in the spine.

And, unfortunately, it is incredibly easy to suffer this injury the older we get.

For those with osteoporosis or other bone density issues, all it takes is one nasty fall.

Vertebroplasty involves getting a cement mixture injected into your spine through a big hollow needle.

It’s every bit as dangerous as it sounds.

There’s a very real risk that the cement used to seal the fracture will leak into your spinal canal, blood vessels, and lungs.

In fact, this leakage happens in more than 26 percent of vertebroplasty cases.

When that happens, you can develop a pulmonary “cement embolism” which can trigger infection, nerve damage, paralysis, and even death.

The Food and Drug Administration even issued a warning about these risks back in 2002.

But mainstream medicine didn’t skip a beat. Vertebroplasty is no less common now than it was 16 years ago.

What’s more? Vertebroplasty has been proven no more effective than painkiller injections.

The latest research of 180 patients who had suffered a spinal fracture found no difference in pain levels regardless of whether a patient received vertebroplasty or a simple painkiller injection.

And back in 2010, two studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine turned up the same results.

The authors even argued that there is no good reason vertebroplasty is considered part of “routine” care for spinal fractures.

You can say that again…

If you or a loved one suffers a spinal fracture, think long and hard before agreeing to vertebroplasty.

There’s almost no benefit at all… and a whole lot of risk.
