Hip Fractures after BP Drugs

A recent study published online in the Archives of Internal Medicine has shown that 43% of hip fractures and falls occurred most often within weeks of the victim being put on anti-hypertensive drugs.

We are made to believe that elderly people have increased falls. The truth is that the anti-blood pressure (BP) drugs make more people fall because of postural fall of BP resulting in hip fractures.

However, the medical establishment is happy as there are 43% more candidates for hip replacements—not a bad businesses deal!
