Thought of the Day - Remain Skeptical

75802-1390018-thumbnail.jpgHealth related products sometimes elicit an almost religious response from people.  Hope springs eternal to find a simple solution to health problems.  I don't have any objections to 'natural' cures and treatments, provided they've been tested for efficacy.

Airborne was marketed as a cure or preventative for the common cold.  So, someone tested the product.  It failed and the company is going to have to pay out. Link

However, notice the amount, they took in over $100 million and have to pay out $23.3.  That's still a profitable product...and the product hasn't been pulled off the market. 

And, no doubt, someone (or many ones) will challenge the validity of the study...

Sometimes health products remind me of religion, people either believe or they don't.
