Mechanism by which Avandia and Actos destroy Bone Discovered

Page Changed: Avandia and Actos: Dangerous Diabetes Drugs

Added citation of new Salk Institute study showing that Avandia raises activity of osteoclast cells that destroy bone.

Added information from Actos prescribing information showing that Actos has been shown to cause identical rates of breaking bone as Avandia in relatively short term use.

Conclusions: Both Actos and Avandia, long term, will cause serious bone deterioration.
