I’m often learning alongside you. This is how we grow, right? I’ve not been a fan of birth control pills for many years. Unfortunately, I did not know the truth about them in the 80’s and early 90’s when I took them as a way to manage my own severe endometriosis. When I woke up to the hand that fed me (my pharmacy license / Big Pharma ) in the late ’90’s, BCP’s was one of the rabbit holes I ventured down… and am still venturing down because there is soooooooo much to understand about this class of medications. Physically, socially, historically, and politically (and it’s all tied together . #ofcourseitis )
The story of “green plasma” was new to me tho. As I said….. always learning . And now I’ve got another book to buy so I can learn more details.
With Big Pharma, things are rarely as they seem on the surface.
Before taking any medication, take the time to dig deeper than what the label (or your pharmacist) says. Most pharmacists have not done their due diligence on learning the truth. They are given talking points by their employer, the insurance companies, and the drug manufacturers.
We research when we buy a car, a computer, or any other impactful purchase….. why would you not do this for something life altering like a long term medication and weigh risk versus benefit. You are worth it.
PS: Note the payout (1.02$Billion for clots and $21 million for gallbladder…. no small potatoes!) in lawsuits related to just two birth control brands [there are more] made by one company (Bayer….. who also happens to own Monsanto….. who also happened to play a large role within the Nazi atrocities committed during WWII https://encyclopedia.ushmm.org/content/en/article/bayer.)
