Actos banned in Europe after diabetes drug tied to cancer !

Yet another diabetes wonder drug gets banned. Stick to lowcarb fresh food and ask your Doctor will getting off my butt be good for me.

“The French Medicines Agency pulled Actos in addition to the pill Competact - a drug that combines Actos and the popular diabetes drug metformin - after a government-funded study found the drugs increased bladder cancer risk. The agency told French doctors to stop prescribing the drugs to patients, but said people currently using them should consult their doctors. German health officials followed suit after reviewing the French report, which tracked diabetics from 2006 to 2009.”
