According to 60 Minutes and a bunch of news sites.
Thalidomide (play /θəˈlɪdəmaɪd/) is a sedative drug introduced in the late 1950s that was used to treat morning sickness and aid sleep. It was sold from 1957 until 1961, when it was withdrawn after being found to be a cause of birth defects. Modern uses of thalidomide (trademarked as Thalomid, according to FDA Orange Book) include treating multiple myeloma in combination with dexamethasone, and erythema nodosum leprosum, with strict controls on its use to prevent birth defects. Research is ongoing in its use to treat other cancers and autoimmune conditions, although its use is controversial; the thalidomide tragedy led to much stricter testing being introduced for drug and pesticide licensing.
My old man is currently taking this for cancer related treatment (Multiple Myeloma)
It has a long list of side effects and is a balancing act between dosage and cancer re-appearing :/
Yeah it's not ideal, the poor fella has never smoked or drank alcohol and has had 2 different types of cancer in the past 5 years and both are very rare strands.
The current side effects he is experiencing is loss of feeling in the tips of his fingers and toes
How long must Germany be forced to pay reparations for WW2 ?Until every last person directly affected has been taken care of?

RE: Faceman's nuked post
Nazi connections aside (that is terrifying enough in itself), people have a right to claim damages against a company if they have been affected by a product the company has claimed is safe. There are mountains of evidence for the claimant in this case. I expect they will be compensated and that will open the flood gates.
The German people are not still repaying their debt for WWII. That happened when they were ordered to march through the concentration camps, which led to events such as the mayor of the town of Gotha and his wife hanging themselves after witnessing what had happened on their soil.
This is about a company knowingly doing the wrong thing and it doesn't matter if they are Nazis, Germans or from anywhere else. These people have a right to reparations.
they're just trolling you faceman, let it go ;)
