Recent news reports gave a short blurb about a New England Journal of Medicine article published Feb. 23, 2006. It summarized a study of 1583 patients with arthritis of the knee divided into different groups of participation. They were given one of the following: placebo, glucosamine, chondroitin, both glucosamine and chondroitinl, or Celebrex. The researchers concluded none of the therapies did significantly better than the placebo. Don't feel bad if you are confused. Each study needs to be looked at carefully because small details can be revealing. I have a problem with a certain detail not mentioned about the participants in most press releases. The writers also make sure the readers are aware that the supplement market is not regulated with a warning that about it. If you go to the NEJM website, find the abstract, read about the population studied, tell me what you think of this report. If you have the same feelings as I do, you can pick out a book from my library to keep.
Take a look. (This is not the abstract, but it has a link to get you there)
