Stop Target from promoting Airborne as effective medicine

People rely on pharmacists to support their best interests by suggesting scientifically proven OTC medicines. For those who do not necessarily research products' efficacy, placing a picture of a smiling pharmacist directly above what is essentially a dietary supplement and claiming that it's "Simple, effective protection for your immune system" is an invitation to rely on something that won't work. Blind consumerism is supported by such product placement, and can lead to serious health conditions.

      Any store that promotes unscientific nonsense makes me question the reliability of the rest of their information. This is particularly dangerous for a pharmacy.

      Pseudoscience had no place in legitimate business. Target has a responsibility to promote proven medical science and not snake oil.

      I oppose the sale of all medical treatments that have not been proven clinically; it is quackery.

      As a Registered Nurse, part of my job is to advocate for the health of people. Promotion of this product rather than promoting effective ways to prevent illness, such as hand washing, is unacceptable.
