Mjeck: Because eating healthy food is boring? Better to scarf down some shiat food, followed by a pill
here to help: I smell some kind of agenda on the part of the article writer. Probably a big Pharma/Corporate farming/anti liberal hippie thing.
BolshyGreatYarblocks: Do the vitamins cause cancer per se, or are there carcinogenic food dye additives like Yellow 5 on many or most pills? Try regulating the dyes -- present on or in a lot of food products -- before you lead a lynch mob on alternative medicine.
Kimpak: megarian: I hate vitamin pills. I never take them.BUT I'm supposed to get a vitamin B shot every month. I think I only do it because it feels like you're a liiiiiittle bit high.Just drink a Spike energy drink.33,333% B12! The 350mg of caffeine will help you feel a little bit high too.
PacificaFitz: I love how this article explains almost an entire century of evidence that vitamins are bad for you and yet people still defend them. People still say "it's ok to take them when....". It is an unregulated quack system set to make people extremely rich at the cost of peoples lives. For the longest time smoking cigarettes was recommended to people as a stress reliever.My parents are people that are convinced that they are making themselves healthy with whatever the vitamin of the week is. Every time a new thing comes up they try to convince everyone that they NEED to take it, and when that vitamin is proven to be nothing more than a sugar pill or worse they move on to the next. I'm a smoker and I look down on you pill popping ignorant fools.
AMonkey'sUncle: A recent blood test showed I was deficient in vitamin D. Vitamin D is more critical to bone mass than calcium.Good to know I shouldn't supplement with Vitamin D.When I need medical advice as an adult, I'll be sure to consult a pediatrician.
