 'Magical' plant offers hope for osteoporosis sufferers 
by What Doctors Don't Tell You - 10/26/2009
A plant that scientists in the 16th century believed had magical powers could prove to be an effective treatment for osteoporosis, the bone-thinning disease.

The ‘vegetable lamb’ plant (Cibotium barmoetz) still plays an important role in Vietnamese folk medicine – and now researchers believe it could help osteoporosis sufferers develop strong bones.

In one study, the plant blocked bone-destroying cells from developing without harming other cells. But it is not the first time that ‘vegetable lamb’ plants have been credited with magical properties – in the 16th and 17th centuries scientists believed its fruit turned into baby sheep.
