Spanish Parents Sue After Acid Reflux Medication Mix Up Leaves Babies With ‘Abnormal’ Body Hair Growth

(MADRID) — Parents of babies and toddlers in Spain who have developed abnormal body hair plan to sue a pharmaceutical company that put a treatment for hair loss into packages meant for addressing acid reflux and other conditions. Spanish health authorities have blamed the Minoxidil mix-up on Farma-Química Sur. They say the well-known topical treatment was put in packaging that was supposed to contain a syrup with omeprazole, which is used for stomach problems. Spain’s Health Ministry has said at least 20 children from the age of a few weeks to two years have been affected. The mother of a 10-month old boy said Saturday that families are getting preparing to file a joint lawsuit against Farma-Química Sur. The company has been closed down pending an official probe.

But so many chronic health conditions afflicting modern humans recede that I believe that it is entirely reasonable to start talking a...
