Over 50, Depression Meds, Don't Break a Leg

If you are over 50 years old and you are taking SSRI's for depression watch your bones. New study here reports and doubling of risk of fracture from minimal trauma injury. If your a female this should be particularly concerning because this is also the time when your hormone levels can most heavily affect maintenance of bone density (or not).

Another reason to seek out healthy and natural alternatives.
