The New York Times has recently posted an updated article about this topic titled, [url=http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/29/health/research/29drug.html?ref=health]Heart Risks Seen in Diabetes Medicine[/url]. This article discusses how, "the company had known about the possible increased risks for nearly two years, and the F.D.A. for at least a year, but neither had informed the public." I think that it is rediculous how companies can not even inform the consumers about this potential risk. This is especially important since the number of those being diagnosed with diabetes is increasing, resulting in more and more people potentially being prescribed Avandia and therefore, increasing this already incredible number of 47,000 people who, "take Avandia and have suffered from a heart attack, stroke, heart failure or death between 1999 and 2009." What do you think the public or other agencies could do in order to help prevent something like this from happening again?
