Once Again: The Pill is NOT "Safe"

Chemicals have consequences:

“According to Johnson & Johnson’s third quarter SEC filing for 2006, there are over ‘1,000 claimants who have filed lawsuits or have made claims regarding injuries allegedly due to Ortho Evra.’”

“Serious health problems have been associated with Ortho Evra including fatal and non-fatal blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, and death. From April 2002 to December 2004, over 27,974 ‘adverse effects’ were reported by users of Ortho Evra. Many of the complaints are serious, and the patch is alleged to be responsible for over 23 deaths, including the death of 14 year old Alycia Brown.”

“It’s interesting to find out that the FDA, ‘big pharma’, and medical professionals consider non-fatal and fatal blood clots as ‘acceptable risks’ of oral contraception.... One has to wonder how many women have been told by their OB/GYNs that their potential death from a fatal blood clot is an ‘acceptable risk’ of using hormone based contraceptives?” said Ruben Obregon, President of the No Room for Contraception Campaign.

Whereas energy-consumption in the West should have ZERO 'acceptable risks.'
