Oscillococcinum is a homeopathic alternative medicine marketed to relieve influenza-like symptoms. It is one of the most popular homeopathic preparations, particularly in France. Oscillococcinum is manufactured by a French company, Boiron, its sole manufacturer.
It is being extensively advertised in South Africa, in particularly in television advertisements.
The burning questions are:
- Does it work?
- Does the way it works make scientific sense?
- What would happen if one publicly states that this product’s claims are baloney?
