Research Shows Yaz is Threatening
The female contraceptive pill called Yaz, made and distributed by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, has been consistently linked to heart attacks in the patients to whom the drug has been prescribed, leading to extensive medical research.
The study in The British Medical journal, referenced above, is also discussed by another reputable source, which states: “Two studies published in the British Medical Journal in 2009 ‘raise alarms’ about the safety of the drugs, according to the Times. One 10-year study tracked blood clot rates in 15- to 49-year-old Danish women with no history of cardiovascular disease. The study found that women taking pills containing the progestins desogestrel, gestodone and drospirenone were at higher risk for blood clots than women taking pills containing levonorgestrel, one of the oldest synthetic progestins. A second study of more than 3,200 Dutch women found that…those taking drospirenone had a 6.3 times greater risk…” (http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/
From this information, it is clear that the research thus far conducted around Yaz has been conducted on the main active hormonal ingredient, which allegedly causes blood clotting that in turn prevents the blood from receiving the proper amount of oxygen. As a consequence, DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) and heart problems, including heart attacks, may develop. Thousands of women have sadly realized the above outlined risk increase, with 11,000 already filing lawsuits against the manufacturer, Bayer Pharmaceuticals.
