Medical professionals in Canada suspect that the deaths of 23 women occurred due to ingestion of Yasmin or Yaz birth control pills. Documents stating this suspicion were recently released.
One of the fatalities is 18-year-old Miranda Scott, who died three years ago after she fell down while working out in a gym and complained she could not breathe. Scott died after blood clots formed in veins throughout her body, leading to a pulmonary embolism, according to the autopsy.
A recent report from Health Canada said 23 deaths and 600 people reporting adverse side effects are suspected to be caused by the use of Yasmin and Yaz.
Bayer released a statement saying that they oppose the Canadian class-action lawsuit stating that Yasmin or Yaz use causes death and negative side effects.
