If you believe it works for you, it works for you. Full stop.
Did you know that 7% of adults in America believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows? Since they believe that, does that make it true full stop?

I'm a RFDer who hopes people don't waste ANY money on your "deal", especially when it's medicine that doesn't do a thing. Calling me a fascist just shows how myopic you really are; it should be removed because it's a scam.
The "deal" is not a scam.
Your "opinion" is the product is a scam but like many other products posted on these forums it's validity is debatable and should be taken with whatever grain of salt the reader deems necessary.
Your belief that the deal should be removed based on the efficacy of the product is censorship. We don't do that in free society.

By all means, the 99% of people who accept the opinion it's a waste of money should be allowed to decide not to buy it.
The rest of the people who might disagree with you should have access to the information they can save ~80% if they decide it's a product they WANT to buy.

We don't need you or anyone like you to "protect" us via censorship.

Does this particular product have a poor reputation? Perhaps as evidenced by the reports in the media but here is a fun fact: Big Pharma and other special interests control the media. Anything that can naturally help people will be slandered and discarded.

There are countless scientific studies showcasing the benefits of Zinc. How convenient that we claim to support ''science'' only when it suits our particular narrative. Go to longecity .org and read the countless scientific articles people have posted. Mindless sheep honestly. So many people live and breath whatever nonsense they hear on the mainstream media. Men especially are cave-man like and sheepish in this regard. They feel they are so enlightened because they read some Big Pharma sponsored hit piece on natural supplements. Whether ColdFX is a dud or not does not refute the fact that Zinc and others have very significant health benefits.

There is so much misinformation here I don't know where to start. Like the guy who claimed zinc is worthless because your body doesn't process it and you just poop it out. Then all medications would be placebos too based on that notion. It's a shame people feel they need to invent Lies in order to try and prove their point. Which is a profound irony.

I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with anything related to the ColdFX debate that is going on, just the above claim.

"Zinc for the common cold."
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21328251



"Zinc Supplementation Decreases Incidence Of Infections In The Elderly: Effect Of Zinc On Generation Of Cytokines And Oxidative Stress"
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17344507


https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10230741
A randomized controlled trial of the effect of fluid extract of Echinacea purpurea on the incidence and severity of colds and respiratory infections.


https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11505787
Efficacy of Echinacea purpurea in patients with a common cold. A placebo-controlled, randomised, double-blind clinical trial.



There are a few more studies out there as well, just thought I'd throw in some studies.

But the serial liars on here told us that there were zero scientific studies for the benefits of Zinc!

Where are they now? Such nasty liars and big pharma shills. Shame they do it for free.


A special irony in how those who say they are pro-science are in fact the most anti-science. The victims of effective propaganda campaigns. Believing the absolute opposite of reality.

*sigh* At this point there's enough down-votes and negative comments to dissuade people from jumping on this, whether it's taken down or not. That's all that matters.

OP and Blaze00 can horde all the ColdFX for themselves, lucky bastards! lol

GSDrisco posted references to NIH documents as if they were gospel. However, concerning the zinc one, for example, the comprehensive response completely disproves the author's process and conclusions.

For those of you cherry-picking and grabbing on to any shred of "evidence," keep on believing what you believe (just like anti-vaxxers do) . But you probably don't belong on a money-saving forum.
In your pants!
