Mercola.com? Lifeextension.com? Springer.com? smilinsuepubs? Show me links to respected medical journals with controlled double-blind studies. Otherwise, forget it. Even the ncbi article uses words like "suggested," "surmised," and "mild" osteopenia. No results--just theories of how the two vites MAY be synergistic. If there was anything to this, don't you think the pharmaceutical industry would be racing to bring combos of K2, D3 and calc. citrate to market--especially since as supplements, these micronutrients are unregulated and could be marketed at a fraction of the expense of bisphosphonates and biologics?
Yes, Big Pharma is profit-driven (though not nearly as venal a set of bastards as the insurance/third-party-provider industry). But without it, we wouldn't have aspirin, acetaminophen, antibiotics, sophisticated anesthetics, affordable synthesized insulin, metformin, hypertension meds, antihistamines, cromolyn, leukotriene inhibitors (ask any asthmatic what life would be like without the latter two--i.e, having bronchodilators & steroids their only option), etc. If herbs, plants, and foods were the key, wouldn't we have conquered a host of diseases long before the advent of commercially patented drugs?
