Just read this article -

it also states there is an association with strontium and rickets in children in strontium rich soil.

And this - However, in a two-year study of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis, the incidence of new vertebral fractures was lower in the group receiving 170 mg per day of strontium than in those receiving 680 mg per day (38.8% vs. 42.0%), even though BMD increased with increasing strontium doses. (9)

This sounds just like the complaints about Fosamax/Actonel - that it increases bone density, but with inferior bone, in that case, old bone.

Haven't found any other studies like this - anyone have any information or thoughts about this? I was ready to start trying strontium if I could afford it.

I just get more confused every day, as treatment for this disease is just so expensive with supplements. Thanks for any advice.
