At least this stuff can help me feel a little better while I have the cold and help me sleep at night.



Lemon water will do non of that.

Don't cold medicines also include pain relievers and decongestants?

Yes, you can take drugs to avoid some of the symptoms if they get really bad...but you can't really take drugs to ward off the actual cold or make it heal faster...

Shit like Emergen-C pretty much only "work" because of the placebo effect, the fact that they are making you drink more fluids, and because colds don't actually last that long. Sure, Vitamin C does actually help with the duration of the common cold...but the part they neglect to tell you is that those studies require the Vitamin C to be in your body *before* the cold starts...taking a huge dose after you are sick is not really helpful (and that you just pee out the excess Vitamin C from that shit anyways).

That's not to say that these people aren't idiots...

Just that a "cure" for a cold isn't really a good point for when it comes to crazy avoidance of modern medicine. I'd personally be in favor of not drugging my young kids for a common cold...as opposed to myself where I might have important shit to do that day...gotta get some meth in me!

I think the breast milk as cure is probably a higher value target for mirth.

Ignoring the reasoning for doing so, breast feeding a 5 year old in western society comes across more then a little creepy.

Breast Milk As An Eye Treatment

Mothers have often used breast milk to treat conjunctivitis — viral, bacterial, and allergic. A probiotic-laden non-acidic liquid can be used to treat viral conjunctivitis, commonly known as pinkeye. Human breast milk has proven to be the most effective liquid to treat babies and children with the eye infection. Two drops of breast milk in addition to a clear eyedropper into the infected eye will get rid of the infection in a jiffy. "Breast milk has been used by mothers (probably for many years) to treat infectious conjunctivitis, but hold off on this idea until you speak with your doctor," Debbi Donovan, a board certified lactation consultant, told iVillage 

Tip: 

Breast milk can also be used as a contact lens solution for cleansing.

Well, I stand corrected. Obviously this family is on the correct course.

A wise man recently said that here so glad you're paying attention to him.

Canadian autoworkers plan to strike and try to force Ford to their will. This on the heels of Ford not picking Canada, but rather Mexico, to open their newest engine plant. This will end well...just not for the Canadian union members.

Ford shares tumble and Unifor gets right in front of the media to say plans for striking not impacted.

How exactly is it that Trump thinks he will get away with not releasing his tax returns now that he is the official nominee?

Dude who had a boner for Obama's college transcripts and birth certificate can't do more than come up with a litany of excuses for why he couldn't release his returns yet, only to finally say "nevermind, not doing it"???

After seeing how much damage the Romney campaign took for not releasing them earlier? And even suggesting to Romney that he release more (albiet, in exchange for that coveted birth certificate)?

There must be some pretty damning stuff in those returns...either nasty suspicious ties, or evidence that he is actually a poor.

He'll get away with it because you can't stump the Trump.
