A Darwin Award for a guy who suffered only mild hypothermia because he followed google maps directions? It was 3 am. Was he drunk? For a Darwin Award, the consequences of the nominee's stupidity have to be more consequential. Natural selection requires that.\n\nThat StarTribune report did get this part right:\n"Don't trust the internet for everything."\n\nIt may seem crueler, but I nominate this for a Darwin Award:\n\nOn Facebook, anti-vaxxers urged a mom not to give her son Tamiflu. He later died.\nBoy Dies Of Flu After Facebook Anti-Vaxxer Group Told His Mother To Try "Natural Cures"\n4-year-old dies from flu after members of anti-vax Facebook group advise his mom to use thyme and elderberries instead of Tamiflu\n\nThe 3rd article from CBS News says:\n… screenshots from an anti-vax Facebook group called "Stop Mandatory Vaccination" are circulating online, and they appear to show that the week before Najee died, his mother sought advice on how to treat her sons' illness. Members of the group advised giving the boys vitamins, botanicals, and fruits and vegetables rather than the Tamiflu that their doctor prescribed.\n\nIn the thread, which has now apparently been scrubbed from the group's Facebook page, the mom wrote, "The doc prescribed tamaflu [sic] I did not pick it up." One user advises, "You're better off taking Vitamin D and C, Elderberry, Zinc, and eating lots of fruits and vegetables."\n\n"Ok perfect I'll try that," she responds. …\n\nLater in the conversation, which can still be viewed in screenshots published by the Colorado Times Recorder, the panicked mother notes that she has been using the elderberry, peppermint oil and Vitamin C that the group members recommended, but her sons' fevers are still not breaking.\n\n"Any other tips I'm terrified for another seizure," she writes. "Please no hard comments I am a momma freaking out all alone in this with a family who believes in none [but] natural ways so I'm going through alone and they are making me feel bad for not putting him on Tamiflu."\n\n"Boil thyme on the stove," a group member chimes in. "Vit C until diarrhea."\n\nIt's not clear if the 4-year old boy had been vaccinated, but I doubt it.\n"The child had not been diagnosed yet, but he was running a fever and had a seizure, the mother wrote. She added that two of her four children had been diagnosed with the flu and that the doctor had prescribed the antiviral Tamiflu for everyone in the household."\n\nI'd like it if medical organizations in the USA marched on Facebook – with pitchforks & torches. They should demand that FB immediately cease permitting reckless & irresponsible posts as if they were reasonable medical advice. FB's shut down would be the ultimate Darwin Award.\n\n\nI know someone currently with 2 sick kids, she posted the article stating she would refuse Tamiflu. Shes using tylenol and motrin for fever and worst case will be antibiotics. I dont understand people. Antibiotics will have no effect on the flu. She just saw what can happen when trying to home rememedy and ignore doctors. If that's not bad enough, her friends chimed in saying they would also refuse Tamiflu.\n\n"This is so beyond frustrating that the fake news shows something like this as a story. Logan just tested positive for the flu on Monday and his doctor tried to use this story to guilt trip me into using Tamilfu!!! I told the doctor that I know from working in a pharmacy that most pharmacists don't recommend Tamiflu. I also know that the reason children die from the flu is bc when parents cant keep their fever down or the child isn't breathing correctly, parents should be taking them to the hospital. It's the ones who don't do this, when these signs are happening, that the children die"\n\nI wish I was making this up.
