Episode 231: Prevention and Treatment of the Common Cold – making sense of the evidence – Part III

In episode 231, Mike and James finally get to the end of their discussion of the CMAJ article “Prevention and Treatment of the Common Cold: making sense of the evidence” that was written by Mike and Bruce Arroll. We discuss all the evidence surrounding the use of alternative and non-drug treatments for the common cold and find out that not much, as with the medication side, really works – although if you like honey and you are a kid you are in luck.
