MNET / DSTV are running adverts for Oscillococcinum, which claims to be effective for flu.
This is a timely reminder that this product has no real effect.
We have posted a number of posts on this absurd product.
Wikipedia has this to say about Oscillococcinum:
Oscillococcinum (or Oscillo) is a homeopathic preparation marketed to relieve influenza-like symptoms. It does not provide any benefit beyond that of sugar pills. It is a popular preparation, particularly in France. It is manufactured by Boiron, its sole manufacturer. Oscillococcinum is used in more than 50 countries and has been in production for over 65 years.
