Here we go again

Another set of drugs and again – problems….This time it’s the anti heartburn “stuff.” If you take these on a long term basis you stand the chance of fracturing your hips…. Why? The drugs may reduce the body’s absorption of calcium….

I’m not sure anyone needs all the drugs we have pushed on us daily – in the paper and on the TV and radio. Saw a full page ad today for some new drug…and that page was followed by another full page where all the warnings were…..

But I am a cynic and I think these pharmas are only out to make money and make it on the growing adult population….

Beware what you take – be it prescribed or over the counter….you are the guinea pig for the long term effects!
