learings on The Pill spark controversy

VASHINGTON (P) -- Initial
gressional hearings into the
ty of birth control pills have
ed with many women clear-
frightened, some drug com-
y stocks down, and the fed-
government showing con-
i-but with no new evidence
pill can kill or even harm.
The greatest medical dilem-
which now confronts us is
division, the deep division,

isability of oral contracep-
-s," said England's Dr. Victor
'hat testimony by Wynn, one
.he earliest researchers to do-

cument the pill's ability to alter
body chemistry, summed up the
dire warnings, flat denials and
carefully hedged maybes heard
by the Senate monopoly subcom-
mittee during five days of hear-
ings spread over the past two
Summarized by the parade of
18 witnesses were reports and
studies linking the pill to head-
aches, nausea, loss of hair, men-
tal depression, liver damage,
stroke, coronary disease, blood
clots, vascular disorders, cancer
of the breast, cervix and uterus.
Wynn himself dramatically
underlined the dilemma when

he said-in what was probably
the newest piece of information
to come out of the hearings-
that a report will be published
within the next month in Great
Britain showing "there has al-
ready been a significant in-
crease in the development of
acute coronary disease among
young women taking the pill."
Then, hardly catching his
breath, he turned right around
and said:
"We are concerned. We are
not alarmed and there's no rea-
son why women should be al-
armed by our pronouncements.
But we are concerned."

The FDA, accused frequently
of sluggishness, suddenly moved
on four fronts to see that doc-
tors, drug firms and patients
are made more aware of the
suspected hazards of taking the
-A letter to the nation's
300,000 doctors urging that they
frankly discuss potential hazards
of the pill with their patients
and alerting the physicians to
recent British studies that con-
firmed a link between the pill
and fatal and nonfatal blood
-A letter to drug companies
urging that they provide more

information on potential haz-
ards with each monthly package
of pills and stop using attrac-
tively decorated booklets which
often make no mention whatso-
ever of any side effects.
-A requirement that drug
companies include in the inserts
that accompany large shipments
to pharmacists mention of the
recent British studies.

Advisory Committee on Obste-

twice reported with growing
concern on suspected hazards of
