page changed: The Truth About Oral Diabetic Drugs

Added link to new study published in Diabetes Care which provides strong evidence that metformin does not raise the risk of lactic acidosis in people who take it and that, in fact, it is safer in this regard than suflonylurea drugs (Amaryl, glipizide, glyburide, etc.)
