    Taking multi-vitamin pills 'does nothing for our health'

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/ar...es-health.html

    While I'm not one of those saying saying supplements can cure this or that or prevent this or that...there's something wrong with the study they did there. I'd say THEY are the ones that wasted their money. Anyone else see what I'm referring to?

    Good article. Yeah anyone taking vitamins to prevent cancer is oblivious.

    I take them to fill in the gaps in my diet. Vit C, fish oil and a multi. I do feel better when I take them consistently but I don't expect too much.

    Re: Taking multi-vitamin pills 'does nothing for our health'

    I've always been big on taking multi-vitamins and supplements to help the body function better and get all of the nutrients that I might not be receiving from my diet. I read magazines like Men's Health that not only say to take a multi-vitamin but also D-3 (Vitamin D), Omega-3 (Fish Oil), B vitamins, etc.

    A couple of months ago I saw a study that a doctor posted on another forum saying the same things as this article. Vitamins and supplements do not do anything for a health person and only help if you have a deficiency or disease. I was stunned! I know that the vitamin/supplement/drug companies push info to get people to take vitamins even though we might not need them, but now they are saying that they could actually be hurting us?!? It seemed a bit over the top, but now has me second guessing all of the supplements that I take.

    Yeah, that's definitely not your average Centrum or One-A-Day. Those have dozens of vitamins in them.

    I take multis too.

    I had a few months break from the supplements. In the last few weeks I've been feeling very unenergetic, probably due to the change in weather. This week I went to the pharmacy and got some supplements, I have to admit that I feel much better with the supplements.

    How fast will one get too much iron? My multi has already 7 mg (of the 10-15 recommended), but I guess my diet has has lots of iron in it. Besides I also get a lot of vitamin C which actually helps the body absorb iron.

    In defense of Multi's I do feel different when I am not taking them. Something is helping.
