Quick Fact as Read on Let’s Eat Cake…

August 24, 2010

Did you know the pill is 70% less effective for women who have a BMI greater than 32.2?

Well…

It is.

Further more, apparently putting a label to that affect on their merch to let the public know is too difficult for some companies.

How awful!

And surprising.

    Not so clear if 70% is so bad at all. I think you’re reading it as if those women have a 70% chance to get pregnant. If true, it would be common knowledge.

    As I read that statement, the chance to get pregnant is still very small, also after increasing it by 70% compared to the chance for other women. Even 100% would just double a very small number. That means there is no cause for alarm. Putting a label to warn people would just be confusing, and people would get alarmed without reason.
