    Japan warns of Tamiflu deaths

    "Japan's health ministry has warned the anti-flu drug Tamiflu can induce strange behaviour leading to accidental death following the deaths of two teenagers who took the medicine, news reports said.

    One 17-year-old Japanese high school student jumped in front of a truck in February 2004 shortly after taking the medicine, while another younger school student is believed to have fallen from the ninth floor of his apartment building this February, the Mainichi newspaper and Kyodo News agency reported."...​

    Health Canada slow to release warning on Tamiflu

    "Ten Canadians have died, including three this year, and at least 74 had adverse reactions after taking Tamiflu, but Health Canada didn't issue a public update about the flu drug until Wednesday.

    The update came more than two weeks after international warnings were posted of adverse reactions to the medication among children and youth." ​

    Apparantly Donald Rumsfield hasn't taken a dose of his own medicine.
