The Deadly TRUTH About Joint Replacement
There’s a good chance you know someone who has gotten a hip replacement.
That person may even be you!
And before the surgery, everyone is told the same thing: replacing your hips will help you get your life back.
But here’s what they DON’T tell you.
That hip replacement could end up killing you instead.
The materials used in his replacement surgeries have now been linked to some of the deadliest diseases around.
Here’s what you need to know to stay safe.
Hip replacements are an easy sell.
Doctors promise that you’ll be mobile and pain-free in just a matter of months.
But, in reality, these artificial joints have been linked to a whole slew of devastating side effects.
I’m talking about dementia, heart problems, organ failure, bone damage, constant pain, and much more.
You see, hip replacement devices are made of metal, which then leaches out into your bloodstream.
And that’s incredibly dangerous.
The more toxins found in your bodily fluids, the more likely you are to suffer from chronic inflammation as well as neurological and cardiac disorders.
Experts are now admitting that these risks apply to anyone who has ever received a hip replacement containing metal – cobalt, in particular.
The issue is so severe that the medical device industry has been quietly trying to hide the evidence.
Back in 2010, the DePuy company took two types of hip implants off the market due to safety concerns. But not before allowing more than 10,000 patients to have them installed.
Since then, hundreds of those victims have sued DePuy over complications from the toxic metals cobalt and chromium used in those implants.
But DePuy isn’t the only company manufacturing these dangerous devices.
Now, regulatory agencies are asking healthcare providers to alert any patients who might be at risk of developing symptoms from blood contamination.
If you or someone you know has had or is planning on having a hip replacement, it is crucial that you are certain the device contains absolutely no metal.
Talk to your doctor about your options. That conversation could literally end up saving your life.
