Drugs used to treat osteoporosis not linked with higher risk of esophageal cancer
WHO CARES? These class of drugs have been linked with the deterioration of bone strength, which is OPPOSITE the reason they were in to be allowed the market place in the first place!? Why is not one going to jail from these companies for criminal FRAUD, and the FDA panel who approved them, being dismantled?!

Although some reports have suggested a link between the use of oral bisphosphonates (drugs that prevent the loss of bone mass) and esophageal cancer, analysis of medical data from more than 80,000 patients in the United Kingdom found that use of these drugs was not significantly associated with new cases of esophageal or gastric cancer, according to a study in the August 11 issue of JAMA.
