Flu Drug Found to Trigger Teen Suicides

Evidently, the number of kids suffering from extreme mental problems after being prescribed Tamiflu has grown so much, particularly in Japan, health officials there have warned doctors not to give the useless flu drug to kids between ages 10-19.

The FDA reports more than 100 cases of hallucinations and other psychiatric problems related to Tamiflu between 2005-06. The newest Japanese figures paint an even grimmer picture, as 54 patients -- close to a third of them under age 20 -- have committed suicide after the taking the flu drug.

This latest advisory from Japanese health advisors came after separate incidents involving two 12-year-old boys who broke both of their legs after jumping out of their homes in addition to two more reports of suicides among teens.

Despite all the evidence to the contrary, however, mega-drugmaker Roche saw no need for taking any action at all, pointing the finger at influenza as the cause of hallucinations, and not at their toxic flu drug. No surprise, the pharmaceutical giant also disagreed with a scientific study I posted a year ago that warned Tamiflu was ineffective against seasonal flu outbreaks.

To get the real story about flu drugs that do far more harm than good and a long-planned-for flu pandemic -- mainly by governmental officials and drug companies -- that never came, I urge you to take a look at my New York Times bestselling book, The Great Bird Flu Hoax: The Truth They Don't Want You to Know About the "Next Big Pandemic".
