Fosamax - another failed Pharmaceutical Drug

There appears to be a trend in drug research. Conventional Medical drugs given for certain conditions are now being found to worsen those very conditions. Following on from anti-depressants (which cause suicide); and Tamoxifen (which causes more aggressive breast cancer), Fosamax (a drug given to patients with Osteoporosis) has now been found to cause sudden hip fractures.

So does ConMed know what it is doing? Well, yes, they do, they are making a great deal of money. But do they really know the harm they are doing to patients? Do they understand that their drugs are dangerous?

A recent study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine has revealed that industry-funded clinical trials - that is, drug trials funded by pharmaceutical companies - almost always show positive results for the drugs they test. In contrast, only about half of government-funded studies show the same drugs to be safe and effective.

So we are just not being told the truth about Big Pharma drugs, by the drug companies, the NHS, our doctors, and the mainstream media!
