Certain Oral Contraceptives Becoming Increasingly Controversial

Previous two postings on Commoner:  "90,000 Votes & Petitions" and "Fascist Mayors"

From the "Ring of Fire" radio program and other news sources, it is becoming more widely known that Bayer Pharmaceutical Company's oral contraceptives for women are becoming increasingly controversial, and according to some studies more risky than some other types of oral contraceptives (see the link further below regarding the British Medical Journal's study on these contraceptives).  Why doesn't the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) pull these particular drugs off the market if there is a significant increased risk of health problems?  This is part and parcel of the problem of the FDA being run largely by corporate insiders or former corporate insiders who seem more concerned about their former companies' interests than the health and welfare of the public at large.

The Lieutenant Governor has only one official duty and that is to preside over the State Senate, so Mark will study the Robert's Rules of Order. If elected, in unofficial duties, Mark will concentrate on emergency management in a state that is susceptible to earthquakes, and one having the Hanford nuclear waste debacle on its hands, and one nuclear power plant. We must learn from the Japan crisis earlier this year, and begin to phase out nuclear energy altogether and transform to solar, wind, geothermal and other non-nuclear and non-fossil fuel energy systems. Where to put the nuclear waste that has already been made will be a major headache for society even as we begin to phase out nuclear energy, but one we'll have to deal with. If elected, I will also be trying to phase out genetically modified food in Washington state by mandating labeling. People, generally, won't buy GMO food if it is labeled, which is why the shady Monsanto Corporation fights proposals for labeling so vigorously. Please, send an e-mail to mark@partyofcommons.com to get a petition page (and anywhere from 2 - 10 signatures) that will get Mark on the ballot. Thanks.

If possible, please, consider contributing to campaign: click on the title link above and make selections of how you want to donate, or send check or money order to Mark Greene for Lieutenant Governor Comm., P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Also, Mark is depending on supporters to spread the word about the campaign to get around the media bias regarding non-establishment campaigns. Thank you! Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2011 and to call out names. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
