Have you noticed all the side effects they list on commercials? They have these birth controls they are advertising with stroke and heart attack. Who on earth will be crazy enough to take such medication. There are far more to list but these two would stop me dead in my tracks.

The thing you've got to bear in mind is, those side effects are super rare, otherwise the meds wouldn't even be allowed on the market. But the manufacturers don't want to get sued in the unlikely event that someone does get bad side effects, so they have to forewarn people to be on the safe side. Especially as people with certain pre-existing health conditions might be more prone to side effects than others. Hence language like "May possibly cause X side effect, please consult your doctor if you have any concerns." To keep things in proportion, you can also sometimes get bad side effects from eating food.
