Some people have been promoting a new herbal mixture
as a remedy for the common cold. The mixture contains,
among other things, extracts of the plants purple coneflower
and goldenseal. A cold sufferer, skeptical of the
claim that the mixture is an effective cold remedy, argued,
â€œSuppose that the mixture were an effective cold remedy.
Since most people with colds wish to recover quickly, it
follows that almost everybody with a cold would be using
it. Therefore, since there are many people who have colds
but do not use the mixture, it is obviously not effective.â€
