    if almost everything is sugar, why don’t we already have diabetes?

      Hi Kate, Because…as the American Diabetes Association states in its myths about Diabetes:

      Myth: Eating too much sugar causes diabetes.

      Fact: No, it does not. Type 1 diabetes is caused by genetics and unknown factors that trigger the onset of the disease; type 2 diabetes is caused by genetics and lifestyle factors. Being overweight does increase your risk for developing type 2 diabetes, and a diet high in calories, whether from sugar or from fat, can contribute to weight gain. If you have a history of diabetes in your family, eating a healthy meal plan and regular exercise are recommended to manage your weight.

      And, if Oscillo and others of its ilk (ie, allegedly glorified sugar pills) were deemed as a cause for diabetes, you can imagine the lawsuits that would lead to…

    Hi Cindy, Thanks for your comment. Two words: "placebo effect". Be that as it may, if it works for you, great! Unfortunately, it's not working for many others. And in our world–the legal news world–that typically adds up to false advertising charges.

    Oscillo is the canonical quack remedy, for numerous reasons pointed out at

    With luck Boiron will get a bloody nose over this, but somehow I doubt it. It looks like "traditionally used in the treatment of" is lawyer-proof, even when the tradition in question is plainly bogus.

    Homeopathy, and for that matter Chinese medicine, have been around a lot longer than Allopathic medicine; and they don't require the belief or validation of a legal expert to work. Europe and Asia have successfully used such remedies for a lot longer than Northern Americans. That being said, I am grateful for Allopathic medicine as well, and I use all of them to better my health. The trick to catching a flu or cold with Homeopathy is timing. I wish Boiron luck with their suit. They have saved me a lot of money when I could have been out of work for a long time with the flu.
