YAZ MDL Status Conference

Just a quick note: the US Southern District  of Illinois Court met yesterday for an MDL 2100 YAZ status update meeting. The meeting minutes are vague and short at best.

290% Increased Chance of a Blood Clot! WTF!!??!!

Love me some infographics, because nothing communicates life-or-death information like some stick figures and crafty fonts.
