Newark woman sues maker of Yaz birth control – Inside Bay Area: “A 39-year-old Newark woman has filed a lawsuit this week against Bayer Corp., blaming its popular birth control product Yaz for causing her stroke and other related health issues.

Susan Galinis, the mother of 3-year-old twin girls, took the prescription-only product for four weeks in the summer of 2008, and wound up suffering a stroke that caused her to be hospitalized for six months, said her attorney, Michael Danko.

The lawsuit was filed Monday in U.S. District Court in San Francisco.” [InsideBayArea.com]
