Mantour: [bohemiantraveler.com image 850x568]Fun fact: Schoolchildren in Iceland are still fed Cod liver oil at school.
A Terrible Human: Vitamins are a crock of shiat. If you buy into them you're farking stupid and not eating properly if you're so deficient in vitamins./Same with that homeopathy garbage.
jake_lex: Hey, if you take a lot of supplements, your piss will be loaded with vitamins and minerals, and thus you'll be recycling them back into the ecosystem! It's a win-win!
hej: rzrwiresunrise: How did we ever survive without multi-vitamins for thousands of years? By eating good food, not junk food, you say? Funny, sounds like something my DOCTOR would say.To be fair, for "thousands of years" people had significantly shorter life spans.
drxym: The "big pharma" conspiracists are as stupid in their own way than 9/11 truthers or the rest. More so because their illinformed decisions about health and put themselves, their kids and others at risk.
