The malaria drug Lariam (mefloquine) is linked to grisly crimes like that of Army Staff Sergeant Robert Bales, who murdered sixteen Afghan civilians in 2012; and the murder of four wives of Fort Bragg soldiers in 2002. The FDA has beefed up warnings about the drug’s neurotoxic effects and users are now given a medication guide and wallet card, but the drug and its generic versions are still the third most prescribed malaria medication in the U.S., with over two hundred thousand prescriptions annually. A recent paper admitted that Lariam may be behind “seemingly spectacular and impulsive suicides.” It produces “derealization and depersonalization, compulsions toward dangerous objects, and morbid curiosity about death” (OpEdNews.com, April 8, 2014). Drugs like these coupled with the recommended lowfat, high-carbohydrate diet make a recipe for violent behavior. A recent study from Denmark found that a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet limited fear and aggression in test animals (PLos ONE 9(4), April 16, 2014).
