"...But the drugs can cause unpleasant side effects, such as vomiting with Tamiflu.
There is also the risk that widespread use of the drugs will mean the virus will develop resistance to them.
For most children aged between 1 and 12, the risks associated with taking the drugs may well outweigh any benefits
say the researchers.
They say parents with sick children should make sure they get lots of rest and enough fluids and that they should contact their doctor if the child's
condition gets worse."
This report came out shortly before a TV news report on the subject. The news report said something along the lines of -
"Experts are encouraging parents NOT to give their children Tamiflu as they are now seeing evidence that suggests that Tamiflu has no effect, and
could well be harmful
We've all said this on here, and I've been telling everyone I know not to take Tamiflu or Relenza. The interesting thing is - I've only seen this
TV report once, and the internet report has been shoved way down the search criteria. Almost as if they don't want people to know that 'wesistance
It was what they WEREN'T saying in these reports that scares me. My MUM of all people pointed this out. They weren't saying what the nasty side
effects (in detail) had been, nor were they giving widespread advice about this change in evidence. People still don't know any different than
before this report. Morons.
Bring on the riots. I'm up for a bloody good fight.
