The short answer is "No." Of course, that opens the door for a lot more questions. In the Name of The Pill, both the website and the book, attempt to expose the risks your doctor may have neglected to tell you.
While the book and website are intended to encourage you to think critically about the medical advice you receive, it isn’t meant to replace medical treatment or advice from a trained professional. If you think you need treatment or have symptoms related to any of the ailments discussed in this book, please schedule an appointment with the appropriate health care professional near you.
The Risks Outweigh the Benefits
From breast cancer and blood clots to depression and debilitating autoimmune disease, the health of millions of women has been sacrificed to chronic and deadly diseases In the Name of The Pill.
This book highlights many of those ailments and examines the role hormonal birth control plays in each. Yet, with significantly increased risk for all these conditions, the drug industry still tells us the benefits outweigh the risks.
To understand the disconnect, In the Name of The Pill explores the history, economics, and politics that gave us birth control before it was proven safe, and exposes the powerful forces working to keep us in the dark.
