Study supports safety of osteoporosis drugs
USA Today

A new study gives reassuring news about the safety of Fosamax and Reclast, bone-building drugs taken by millions of American women. It found that long-term use does not significantly raise the risk of a rare type of fracture near the hip. On balance, these drugs prevent far more fractures than any they may cause when used to treat the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis, said the study’s leader, Dr. Dennis Black of the University of California, San Francisco.
