    Controversial Blackmores pharmacy deal withdrawn

    The Pharmacy Guild of Australia says its deal to promote Blackmore complementary medicines has been withdrawn because of "ill-informed and inflammatory" community outrage.

    Sounds like a good outcome to me.

    I guess my outrage must be ill-informed and inflammatory. I hope Blackmores will forgive me.

    Good decision.

    The types of natural health products Blackmores produce often have low efficacy.

    For example, meta-analysis of Vitamin C used to prevent the severity of the common cold suggests limited therapeutic value.
