I’m sure you have read or heard the story out there claiming that “scientific research” shows that taking vitamins is at best a waste of money and at worst harmful to one’s health. They even go so far as to say that the “scientific studies” show that taking multi-vitamins can increase your risk of cancer.
Don’t worry. There are no such “scientific studies”.
The conclusions regarding multivitamins are based on nothing more than the results of epidemiological surveys – surveys of people who report what they think they remember they ate and what supplements they think they remember taking and for how long and for what times of their lives. All sorts of statistical games are played with this nonsensical “data” and then the headline-making conclusions are publicized – and the best they can come up with is that multi- vitamins do not cure cancer or any other diseases.
Multivitamins simply supply nutritional needs. Unlike metabolic nutritional therapy are not designed as treatment for any disease.
There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of legitimate scientific studies in the scientific literature demonstrating the benefits for every vitamin you can imagine, every mineral you can imagine, every trace mineral you can imagine, every amino acid you can imagine, not to mention all the adaptogens that are commonly used in clinical nutrition.
But these facts cut into the profits of big pharm and since they fund the research departments of so many universities, are protected by the FDA and CDC and drive the healthcare narrative via their control over the media who very much like those billions of advertising dollars- (80% comes from Big pharms’ coffers) – so, expect to see more anti-nutrition propaganda that unfortunately is swallowed by much of the gullible, ignorant public and biased, nutritionally uneducated physicians.
