Birth Control Raises Risk of Heart Attack

I read a news article today that there is a 200% increase of a heart attack when one uses birth control. Since last week we talked on contraception as the discussion topic, I thought this should be brought up. The news article is Lifesite News.

"A new study has shown that women are at 200% greater risk of heart attack and stroke with the ‘low-dose” pill, especially for those women with pre-existing medical conditions. A group of researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University and the UniversitĂ© de Sherbrooke have examined the cases of contraceptive-related complications in women between 1980 and 2002."
