The Pill: Sure Risk Sheer Profit
Currently there are 8 million women on oral contraceptives (the pill) in this country. Current research indicates that 300 to 500 women die each year from pill- related pulmonary embolism . There is a steady increase in the number of young women with strokes - all on the pill. In recent years there has also been an increase in clotting disorders of 4 to 11 times and an increase of heart attack of 3 to 6 times. We will discuss these side effects later but if the pill is dangerous for many women , why is it still being promoted and sold?
