Women who have used the bone-building drug Fosamax are nearly twice as likely to develop the most common kind of chronically irregular heartbeat as those who have never used it. Patients, especially those with family history of osteoporosis, should talk to their doctor about whether the drug is the appropriate option for them.

I give my dog oranges and vitamin C pills....but she still loses her bones- therefore, I conclude that the study is wrong.
