This Tainted, Tampering, Sabotage, whatever you want to call it with ANY Medicine used to be taken very seriously by our Media and Goverment officials. How many remember the Tylenol Saboteur from the 1980’s (I believe). He Poisoned many people before he was caught. The Government spent hundreds of millions of dollars to track down and prosecute this saboteur! Every news channel broadcasted it day and night. Every bottle of Tylenol was pulled off the shelf until he was caught. Yes crime led to tamper proof seals and bottles. We need to find out how this medicine was tampered with, tainted, and find out if it was sabotage by a terrorist!
