 Diabetes Drugs Actos & Avandia Increase Bone Fracture Rate
Actos and Avandia1 shouldn’t even be on the market as they have already been proven to cause heart failure. Now it is clear they also cause abnormal bone fractures. People who are type II diabetic are already at increased risk for both of these problems anyway. Why on earth would they want to take a medication that increases the risk for both problems even further.

This is yet one more example of the FDA miserably failing the public health and protecting the sales of dangerous drugs that are freely advertised on TV.
