The quote that is enlightening to me is: "Compounding the panic in Israel was the fact the manufacturing firm, Humana, was German and the fatal disease was beriberi, an ailment that ran rampant in World War II internment camps."
The disease is blamed for several deaths in Israel although I always assumed babies were given vitamins in addition to what they recieved in solid foods. It would appear that Beriberi was just another means by which WWII internees became statistics in the death books.
