Diet Supplements and Swine Flu
There are many floating rumors about how dietary supplements may protect you from swine flu. CNN has an article, warning the public about the lack of scientific evidence to support such claims. Additionally, the FDA has already released a warning about fraudulent H1N1 products. Currently, there are only two FDA-approved products for the treatment of influenza: Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir). These medications are so new that I didn't even learn about these drugs in medical school.
