Forget Robitussin, try a sugar pill

Recent studies unearthed the truth about children's cold medicines: not only are they useless against cold symptoms, but they can cause harm to children. So is it any surprise that adult cold medicines are generally no better than placebos?

Turns out Mom was right: drink plenty of fluids and get some rest. And save your drug money for the real diseases.

1) Spilling the beans on placebos does not enhance their effect. Jerk.

2) The term "fluids" is a bit vague. Turns out that my strict regimen of beer and coffee hasn't been particularly helpful.

3) Why would you link to Staph? Have you been reading "Fast-Food Nation"? Fear-mongerer!
