A California woman and her husband sued drugmaker Bayer in federal court in San Francisco on Monday, saying she suffered a debilitating stroke after taking the company's popular birth control pill Yaz for a month. Hundreds of such suits have been filed around the country in the past month and are just "the tip of the iceberg," says the woman's lawyer. The suits were triggered by the publication of two recent studies in a British medical journal.
