A junior high school girl in Japan fell to her death, possibly as the result of a suicidal jump, after allegedly taking Tamiflu.
Tamiflu has been linked with erratic behavior in children, including jumping from buildings or walking in front of oncoming cars.
It is believed that the girl dropped from a passageway on the 10th floor of an apartment complex. Earlier the same day, she was given an anti-flu medication, believed to be Tamiflu, at a hospital.
You can't blame states for wanting to back far away from ineffective flu drugs. At least four deaths and 100 recent cases of bizarre behavior have been associated with the use of Tamiflu, mainly involving children and largely in Japan, because they use it far more often than any other country in the world.
The most horrifying part is that these drugs work poorly or not at all. Studies have found that the flu vaccine is only 40 percent effective in preventing illness in the elderly -- if it's even the vaccine providing the benefit at all, and not just the better health care those who can afford vaccines are getting.
For most people, the flu shot does not prevent illness, but actually does just the opposite -- it weakens your immune system and makes you more predisposed to the illness. They're also loaded with neurotoxic substances like mercury and aluminum.
With the flu "season" for conventional medicine coming to an end for the year, you probably haven't heard much about any major outbreaks or vaccine shortages in the United States. Perhaps more people than ever are relying on their own common sense and a variation of my safe and simple flu protocol, one that avoids worthless, toxic drugs.
