GPs told to warn about threat from popular contraceptive

GPs told to warn about threat from popular contraceptive | Case 2 : "I want to go on the pill! | Scoop.it
Taking some of the bestselling brands of birth control tablets means women are nearly twice as likely to suffer blood clots compared to those who use older varieties.
Dr Alan Stone's insight:

Scare stories about the pill in the media are common. Is this information or misinformation? How do you explain risk to the public - especially relative risk? Why do newspapers like this type of story? Is this about selling copies - sex and death in the same story - or a concern to inform?

more...
Anne Marie Cunningham's comment, February 3, 2014 5:06 PM
Hello Dr Stone! I saved the Telegraph version of this story to this topic last night and asked almost the same questions as you. Do you think that the Telegraph's coverage is substantially different? I also linked back to the 1995 pill scare - I hope this one doesn't have the same impact.
