Zinc for severe pneumonia in very young children: double-blind placebo-controlled trial

To me, this is another no brainer. Zinc supplementation is very safe and very inexpensive. In this study it reduced the hospital stay by one day and the duration of pneumonia by one day. The cost of the zinc in this study was probably under $5 (exchange rate for hospital = $45) and saved many hundreds if not thousands of dollars in hospital charges. But once again, do not look for zinc supplementation in a hospital near you soon.
