#1 Lupron is used in treating late stage prostate cancer or returning cancer. It has side effects but considering that late stage prostate cancer patients are running out of time anyway, many doctors will use it. Prostate cancer kills about 30,000 US citizens a year.

There is almost certainly less risk in giving lupron to young otherwise healthy patients.

This is not to say 'no risk', just less risk.

#2 I do hate this story. It is a bad statistic, as lord garth stated, based on treatment of profoundly unhealthy people (many of whom likely would have died no matter what they were given). There is no evidence listed here that shows these drugs are anywhere nearly as risky as this is making them sound (or which even concludes that the drugs were responsible for all of the deaths they were associated with; if I were taking to be taking morphine after a car crash and die anyways, I was not killed by morphine).
