The Coalition Against BAYER (CBGNetwork or CBG) has launched a campaign asking the Bayer company to remove contraceptive pills from the market due to the potential health risks. The CBG also demands mandatory disclosure of all reported side effects and all post-marketing surveillance studies and effective punishments for unfair pharmaceutical advertising. Oral contraceptives that are associated with an elevated risk of thrombosis and embolism must be banned. According to the CBG, “contraceptive pills of the latest generation are associated with a risk of embolism that is nearly twice as high as that associated with older products. At least 200 young women have died so far. Yaz/Yasmin is heavily advertised by Bayer, especially towards girls and young women, by promising reduction of weight and acne relief. However, no attention is drawn by Bayer to the more pronounced risk profile associated with products containing the hormone drospirenone. This leads to avoidable incidents and fatalities.” The Coalition Against Bayer Dangers has been monitoring the chemical and pharmaceutical company Bayer for more than three decades.
