TOKYO — Two teenage boys who took the antiviral drug Tamiflu exhibited abnormal behavior that led to their deaths, with one jumping in front of an oncoming truck last year and the other falling from the ninth floor of a building earlier this year, health ministry and other sources said Saturday.
The drug in Japan carries a note listing impaired consciousness, abnormal behaviors, hallucination and other psychological and neurological symptoms as possible serious side effects.
Not that I was considering this drug anyway, but this kind of thing should be very worrying for anyone who wants to take it. People cannot sue for vaccines. Does that hold true for Rumsfeld's favorite drug as well?

Are there anymore cases other than these "2"? This isn't too convincing. Most drugs have warnings of these side effects. We have two cases out of millions of people who are using it. How can we say that it is dangerous at this point. How do we know that these kids weren't engaging in other drugs or alcohol? It doesn't say.

Here's another Monsanto connection: Donald Rumsfield.
Rumsfeld Lobbied FDA Approval of Toxic Aspartame (continued)
by RM NEWS
A hard-right Republican who served four terms in Congress (1962-69),Rumsfeld voted against food stamps, Medicare and anti-poverty funds. Rumsfeld'spolitical ideology encompasses the stockpiling of chemical weapons,downsizing the Federal government, and eliminating funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting."
"James Turner, the anti-aspartame advocate alleges that Searle hired Rumsfeld to handle the aspartame approval difficulties as a "legal problem rather than a scientific problem."
"On September 30, 1980, the PBOI voted unanimously to reject the use of aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet) until additional studies on aspartame's potential to cause brain tumors could be done. On January 21, 1981, the day after Ronald Reagan was inaugurated as President of the United States, Searle
Pharmaceuticals reapplied to the FDA for aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet) approval.
A former G.D. Searle salesperson, Patty Wood-Allott, revealed that Donald Rumsfeld, president of Searle, told his sales force that, if necessary, "he would call in all his markers and that no matter what, he would see to it that aspartame would be approved that year."
