Airborne is fraud
Who would ever believe that “an effervescent dietary supplement that was created by a school teacher” could cure the common cold? Evidently, quite a few people: the company says it took in more than $100 million from sniffly consumers through 2006, who followed the company’s advice to take the stuff at the first sign of symptoms and to expect relief within an hour or two.
An official at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a food health and safety advocacy group that helped bring the lawsuit, disagreed. “There’s no credible evidence that what’s in Airborne can prevent colds or protect you from a germy environment,” David Schardt said in a news release.

But if you were dumb enough (yes, I'm calling some of my friends dumb) to buy some, you can now claim a refund for Airborne, due to a lawsuit that Airborne has tentatively settled.

Glad I never bothered to buy any. It sounded like a crock of shit to me.

I'm not surprised it doesn't work. I never used it, but I know a couple of people who swear by the stuff.

This is the first I've heard of anything like that...
