I thought I would make my first post now that I’m back from my conference something happy (in a schadenfreude way):
“ Makers of the herbal supplement Airborne have agreed to pay $23.3 million in a class-action lawsuit over false advertising. David Schardt, a senior nutritionist with the Center for Science in the Public Interest, says it’s just one battle in his efforts to prevent companies from making misleading claims.”
It’s always nice to see science win, and hucksters loose :D
BTW, Airborne claims to be a homeopathic medication on it’s label. You can find a little more background info at Quackfiles.
