My Citrus Placebo

The herbal supplement Airborne has lost a $23.3 million dollar class action lawsuit yesterday for false advertising. Stating it can kill it a cold when all it can do is boost your immune prior to a cold. I guess people didn't know you were suppose to take them prior to entering a sick-plague area.

I've been known to pop a few of these boosters at work as if they were candy and they sure have prevented a few colds coming my way. What else would you expect in a tablet that has the capacity of vitamin C equivalent to 10 oranges? (NYT)
