Great "science" hoaxes: Vitamins Supplements: brainwashed americans offer the illuminati $2 billion a year
Great "science" hoaxes: Vitamins Supplements: brainwashed americans offer the illuminati $2 billion a year

Studies showing the negative or null effects of vitamins supplements are so common that it is surprising doctors still find these studies to be surprising. Vitamins are not as simple as A-B-C.

The latest bit of confusion appears in the April 27 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. Doctors in Australia provided nearly 1,900 pregnant women with either supplements of vitamins C and E or a placebo to see whether the vitamins would lower the risk of developing high blood pressure during pregnancy. It didn't work.

Surprisingly, the doctors said, the vitamin group had a slightly higher rate of high blood pressure compared to the placebo group.

We love our vitamins

The levels of vitamins C and E were greater than those found in an ordinary multivitamin tablet—1,000 milligrams of C and 400 IU of E, or roughly 10 and 20 times the recommended daily allowance. In an editorial accompanying the study, doctors said that supplements at these levels should not be prescribed routinely.

But we love our vitamins.

Americans spend about $2 billion a year on vitamins C and E, along with beta carotene (a precursor of vitamin A) and selenium, according to Nutrition Business Journal. These are the most popular antioxidants, a class of chemicals said to cure just about everything.

The trouble is, science can't seem to support the bad movie script created by the vitamin supplement industry.

One thing that studies do reveal is that a diet rich in antioxidants, as opposed to supplements, is associated with lower rates of cancer and circulatory disease.


the above statement is taken from the article
and appears to contridict the writers hypothesis

especially since alot of supplements are antioxidents

Well that was a dumb-fuck study cause nobody takes vitamin c to lower their blood pressure anyway.

This is like anouncing that sand is an ineffective lubricant so you shouldn't go to the beach.

Sorry about the insult to the word dum-fuck.

What I take is Megafood vitamins... they're grown rather than manufactured and contain the vits in a food-state with all the phytonutrients. Somewhat low potency but highly bio-available. They can be taken on an empty stomach and have no burp or indigestion factor.

The EU has tried to limit (based on the assertions of the UN) the availability of vitamins for member countries. You CAN still get vitamins at the moment in most places, but it will get harder unless we stand up against big pharma en masse. Under the new regulations you would be forced to get prescriptions for vitamins (because ew all know that the 4 hours a doctor gets in understanding the value of vitamins in their training turns them into major fans of the things) and tablets would be limited to 10 mgs (for Vit C for example)and be ISSUED by the big pharma companies themselves. Interestingly, you get about 90mgs of Vit C in an ORANGE...so would oranges (and eventually all fruits and vegetables) ultimately need to be presciption-only medications?

NOT TRUE

GL

THE "VITAMINS" REFERRED TO HERE ARE THOSE MADE BY BIG PHARMA ITSELF. CRAP INSUFFICIENT DOSES, SYNTHETIC E AND D, ETC. CRUSHED UP ROCKS CLAIMED TO NE MINERALS, FRAUDS LIKE "CENTRUM", THIS IS BIG PHARMA DECEPTION BUSINESS. DESIGNED TO CON AND MAKE A STRAW MAN VICTIM OUT OF THEIR REAL COMPETITION.

THIS REALLY IS A FTC ISSUE NOT A VITAMIN ISSUE BUT SINCE WHEN HAS THE FTC BEEN REALLY INTERESTED IN REAL "TRADE DESCRIPTION" FRAUDS.

Actually supplimentation works if it's tailored to your individual needs. Otherwise besides having expensive pee you might suffer from vitaminosis ie. having the same symptoms you are trying to prevent.

Vitamins start out in huge mixing vats, when the mixture is like paste it is spread thinly (like the thickness of a tablet) on huge sheets and dried, then the tablets are stamped out of the dried sheets, sent to a 'polisher', something that takes the burs and blemishes off, and then they are bottled with their fancy labels and we are expected to believe that each indivual tablet that comes out of this process has the 25 to a 100 vitamins, minerals, and herbs listed on the label, AND in the quantities listed! There is no way to test these individual pills to see what or how much of any one substance there is contained in the tablet or capsule.
