Birth control pills increase the risk of ischemic stroke


(NaturalHealth365) In a sobering review published in January of this year, researchers from Loyola University Medical Center confirmed an unexpected yet potentially devastating side effect of birth control pills: an increased risk for ischemic stroke.

In fact, this review is an updated account of a paper originally published in the journal Medlink Neurology in 2003.  The truth is: many studies have revealed the link between stroke and oral contraceptives – a medication currently taken by an estimated 100 million women worldwide.

The most common type of stroke is MORE likely to happen when taking birth control pills

Ischemic stroke accounts for about 85% of all strokes. These types of strokes occur when a part of the brain becomes starved of blood, generally due to a blood clot which blocks circulation.

The other main type of stroke, called a hemorrhagic stroke, occurs when excessive bleeding happens in the brain. The different ways these strokes occur explains why oral contraceptives increase the risk for ischemic stroke specifically and not hemorrhagic stroke.

Reviewers explain that birth control pills can make the blood more likely to coagulate(clot) and can increase blood pressure. Both of these adverse effects can cause circulation-blocking blood clots to develop in cerebral blood vessels – a dangerous recipe for a stroke.

The overall risk of stroke due to birth control pills remains relatively small, particularly for otherwise healthy young women. But, the risk does increase significantly for women with known stroke risk factors, including diabetes, cigarette use, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, excessive alcohol consumption, physical inactivity, and migraines with aura (aura is a migraine-related syndrome of sensory changes including visual disturbances and tingling).

Based on this evidence, the authors’ stance is clear: women with stroke risk factors should be discouraged from using birth control pills in the majority of cases.

What does the evidence say about whether birth control pills are safe for you?

Deciding how you want to take control of your reproductive health is a personal decision. If you or a loved one are considering using birth control pills, it’s important to discuss the potential risks with a physician.

This review from the Loyola Medicine stroke specialists offers some helpful considerations:

Firstly, any woman considering oral contraceptives should be carefully screened – something which likely is not being done adequately across the board.

Secondly, birth control pills should have the minimal effective dose of the hormones estrogen and progestin – enough to prevent pregnancy but not so much as to excessively raise the risk of adverse effects.

Thirdly, all women taking oral contraceptives experience at least some increased risk for ischemic stroke. For some women, the risk is much greater.

Boko Haram kills own commander who planned to surrender

Ali Gaga Left with Boko Haram Members planning to Surrender

A prominent Boko Haram Commander, Ali Gaga, has been killed by other commanders of the terrorist group while planning to surrender to the military authorities and escape with about 300 captives from their den, competent sources disclosed to PRNigeria.

The sources who spoke to PRNigeria on grounds of anonymity said that Ali Gaga was killed by other commanders loyal to Mamman Nur’s faction who got a hint of his unexecuted plan.

PRNigeria further learnt in a video exclusively obtained, that Mr Gaga had already perfected his plan to surrender to the military authorities in a negotiation brokered by a prominent non- governmental organization (NGO) conversant with the issues, when his plan was leaked to other Boko haram commanders, resulting to his execution.

The sources said that Mr Gaga was a Fulani man from Taraba State and was forced to join the Mamman Nur’s faction of the group three years ago after his cows were seized from him by Boko Haram on the fringe of the Lake Chad.

“Gaga was trained on how to fight wars and engage in combat operations. He also possessed an extraordinary ability to know the terrain because he was a herdsman. This elevated him to a level of a Commanding Officer by the Mamman Nur’s Faction,” the sources further said.

“Gaga was not interested in holding captives for ransom like others. What is paramount to him is getting his livestock and continue what he was doing as a herdsman and reunite with his family”.

The sources also revealed that Mr Gaga was already in touch with foreign influencers who would have rescued him and others before he was killed.

In one of the videos obtained by PRNigeria, Mr Gaga spoke in Hausa language and introduced other leaders working towards rescuing and escaping with the captives to surrender to the military authority.

He also expressed gratitude to prominent leaders of Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) persuading them to surrender and assured them of adequate safety and protection once they surrendered voluntarily.

“We are tired of this senseless act of terrorism. We are ready to surrender with my people and other captive and live a normal away from this unfortunate terrain of needless suffering,” he said in about 3-minute video recording in a forest.

Soros’ $246 Mil Contribution That Helped Smear Kavanaugh Revealed – Here’s Who Cashed In

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Fox News Insider:

Laura Ingraham investigated how the protests against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh are being coordinated by well-funded liberal activist groups.

Kavanaugh, President Trump’s pick for the high court, faces allegations of sexual assault dating back to high school by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. He is also accused of exposing himself at a freshman year dorm party to his Yale University classmate Deborah Ramirez. Kavanaugh has emphatically denied the allegations.

On her program Tuesday, Ingraham noted that the Women’s March has taken the lead in organizing opposition to Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

“We are organizing an impactful, non-arrest, direct action to make sure that the Senate knows that #WeBelieveChristine and demand that they #CancelKavanaugh and vote no on his confirmation,” the group said.

Ingraham pointed out that the Women’s March counts Planned Parenthood and the Natural Resources Defense Council as their premier partners, and both groups — which have actively opposed Kavanaugh since his nomination was announced — are associated with far-left billionaire donor George Soros.

“According to an extensive study by the Media Research Center, 100 of the 544 Women’s March partners have received a total of … $246,637,217 from Soros at last count,” Ingraham said, noting that Planned Parenthood and the Natural Resources Defense Council are among those partners.

Former Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie said he’s not at all surprised to see Soros linked to the groups behind anti-Kavanaugh protests.

“He’s connected throughout all of the left-wing activities in this country and around the world,” Bossie said.

He added that he would like to see more “consistency” from the Kavanaugh protesters, who have largely been silent on the allegations facing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) and others on the left.

Jeffrey Lord, contributing editor for The American Spectator, said there was a similar backlash when former President George W. Bush nominated Judge D. Brooks Smith to serve on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in 2001.

He said Democratic senators challenged Smith’s nomination, but it was actually liberal interest groups behind the scenes that were “pulling the strings,” including one group funded by Soros.

He said a similar scenario appears to be playing out with Kavanaugh’s nomination, calling it “a real serious problem.”

Ingraham said Soros and his Open Society Foundation can spend money however they want under the law, and it’s on Republicans to get their own billionaire donors and activist groups to push back.

“If they want to give money to Planned Parenthood, want to give money to National Resource Defense Council, if they want to give money to the Women’s March, he can do it,” Ingraham said. “We’re the Republicans. The Republicans have to have their own groups like this.”

Leah Sharibu’s Heartbroken Mom Begs Buhari Not To Allow Boko Haram Kill Her Daughter

The mother of Leah Sharibu, the remaining Dapchi schoolgirl in captivity, has once again appealed to on the Federal Government to meet the demands of her abductors and secure her release, according to a report by Channels Television.

While making the appeal during a news conference in Jos on Saturday, Rebecca Sharibu called on President Muhammadu Buhari to rescue her daughter who has been in captivity for seven months.

In an emotional interaction with journalists, Leah’s mother who spoke in Hausa, said the appeal was urgent as Boko Haram had threatened to kill Leah if the group’s demands are not met.

“She pleaded with the President, the Vice President, the Secretary to the Federal Government to, please, do whatever they can to ensure that Leah is released,” Dr Gloria Samdi, an activist said after the heartbroken mother spoke.

Samdi is the member of a rights group, Citizens Monitoring Group, that has been championing the release of Leah and the other girls in captivity.

Leah’s father, Nathan Sharibu, also called in and appealed to the government to act urgently as time is running out for his daughter.

He rejected having any connection with any court case against the Federal Government seeking compensation over the abduction of Leah.

The Convener, Citizens Monitoring Group, Reverend Gideon Para Mallam, called on the Federal Government to listen to the plea by Leah’s parents and take concrete steps to free her.

Leah Sharibu was one of the over 100 schoolgirls abducted from the Government Girls Secondary School in Dapchi, Adamawa State, on February 19, 2018.

Although the other girls have been freed, she has been held back reportedly for refusing to denounce her religion – Christianity.

There have been calls from across the world for her release.

Fresh Threat

Earlier this month, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a faction of Boko Haram holding Leah captive, killed Saifura Ahmed, one of the three humanitarian workers abducted in Rann, Kala Balge Local Government Area of Borno State.

Ahmed had been abducted along with two other aid workers in March.

Online news website The Cable reported that the terrorists threatened to kill Leah and the other aid workers in a month if the government does not meet their demands.

They claimed that they had contacted the government without getting a response.

The murder of the aid worker led to global outrage and was widely condemned.

In August, Leah herself had cried out to the President for help. She made the plea in an audio clip published by The Cable.

In the clip, Leah who at the time had been in captivity for six months also sought help for her family.
