Tell Boiron to refund consumers misled by their fake medicine

    1. Petition by

      James Randi Educational Foundation

I tried Boiron's Coldcalm remedy and it didn't do anything for my cold. It's no wonder, because there are actually no active ingredients in Coldcalm, or any homeopathic products!

After seven days of attempted contact, Boiron finally told me I could have my money back-- but only if I sent them a receipt dated within the last 14 days, and the bar code from the original box. That sounds fair until you consider that homeopathic remedies only seem to "work" when people feel better on their own, and that's often after a week or more has passed since the product was purchased. Boiron insists on a tiny window for returns, in which most people not familiar with the homeopathic scam are virtually guaranteed not to come to the same conclusions I did… yet.

Boiron is selling people fake medicine and profiting off their misinformation, knowing that by the time their customers have found out the truth, it will likely be past the chance for a refund on their bogus product. Will you join me and the JREF in telling Boiron to refund any customer who ever bought their products? If you've bought Boiron products and want your money back, "add a reason" when you sign, and say so!

      By selling homeopathic products as medicine, Boiron is effectively scamming all of its customers. It owes them their money back, no matter how much time has passed since they were swindled.

      Homeopathy is a very dangerous practice. Although it has almost no molecules present in most medications, the very idea of choosing homeopathy rather than conventional medicine is disturbing. Not all people are getting the facts right, most of them are even uneducated. What's the most troublesome for me is when they promote homeopathy to people with serious illnesses, and discredit the usefulness of conventional medicine just because some of them has some bad side-effects (although it's good-effects is overwhelmingly better). And I always don't get a good explanation from the believers of homeopathy.They would only give arguments which are fallacious or biased. I demand that the responsible authorities to at least put up a note on the homeopathy medicine bottle, that the buyer should always seek conventional medicine first-especially if suffering from serious ilnesses.They should also note that there is no evidence that supports homeopathy. Whatever evidence 'they' claim to have is not considered to be scientifically proven or even it might be biased in a way-as been shown numerous times.Please, I implore you people to be reasonable.

      For ethical reasons what this company is doing is a crime. My mother was scammed by a homeopathic doctor who was selling her sugar pills.

      It's about time this nonsense was shown for what it is.

      Homeopathy is dangerous because people think pretend medicine can cure real diseases. It should be illegal to put unsubstantiated claims on any sort of "remedy".
