Health News -- New research has found that certain osteoporosis treatments can increase lifespan by five years. In addition, the findings held true whether or not a person suffered from the bone-density disorder. According to Australian researchers from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, people taking bisphosphonates for the treatment of osteoporosis were found to have a higher survival rate, and were actually gaining an additional five years of life.
