Airborne

I feel cheated! I've been such a huge proponent of taking Airborne to fight off the cold and flu virus. I got my hubby and the rest of my family started on taking Airborne. I've sold the idea to friends and colleagues at work. And I buy a huge supply every time we're at Costco. Today, I came across this article:

Airborne settles lawsuit for $23.3 million

Here are some excerpts from the article:

Airborne - the herbal supplement company that once claimed to help fight off colds - will pay $23.3 million to settle a class-action lawsuit brought against the company for false advertising, according to one of the groups that joined the suit.

"There's no credible evidence that what's in Airborne can prevent colds or protect you from a germy environment," said CSPI Senior nutritionist David Schardt. "Airborne is basically on overpriced, run-of-the-mill vitamin pill that's been cleverly, but deceptively, marketed."

Did Airborne actually cure us of our cold and flu virus or was it more a psychological cure? Advertisement may have ruin our perception of a product.

Will you ask a refund from Airborne?

You know what, dad, that's what I thought too. I always felt Airborne worked when we took it (for preventing colds and helping us get better faster) but I guess it was more psychological.

Hi Les! Yes, my blog has a new look - thanks to Jojo :) Probably will not go thru getting a refund from Airborne. Hassle eh plus it sort of worked na rin for me :)

jo, have you considered that your body reacted the way it should anyway? (i'm saying this without reading the case ha) and that perhaps it didn't work with the other guy's body because he might be on other things that interfered?

just a thought. i hardly use drugs on the kids and myself. it's only stan. :p we use homeopathic remedies.
