It’s Official: Airborne is a Fake Bunch of Junk

Actually it’s a bunch of ineffective vitamins, without the ability to ‘boost your immune system (there’s no such thing as boosting your immune system) or prevent clothes.  If you’ve bought Airborne, you are in for a treat, because a class-action lawsuit has just been settled against Airborne on your behalf.  Quoth the webpage

Airborne . . . falsely advertised certain therapeutic properties, including the ability to cure or prevent the common cold, when marketing products under the Airborne brand name, as listed below. Defendants deny any wrongdoing or illegal conduct but have agreed to settle the litigation.

So while they didn’t exactly admit to being charlatans, they certainly weren’t willing to expose themselves to the kind of scrutiny that could prove their products completely worthless.
