Taking Vitamins, A Waste of Time?
AwN | There was a time that I thought vitamins were a good thing, but over time as I learned more and more who I was and what I believe, I stopped categorically accepting vitamins as a worthwhile food (that is what they are, right?). For the most part I agree with the following article, although I am not quite as dismissive of vitamins (supplements).
I doubt that supplements actually harm people, but I also doubt that they do almost anything positive. The author seems to think that modern people can just eat regularly and get their nutrients, but that's where I begin to diverge from the article. I think the author greatly over estimates the nutritional content of the average american diet. I suspect most of the people who care enough, and are wealthy enough to purchase and consume vitamins, don't actually need them. Vitamins in their supplement form are wholly absent from Nature, and likely just a scam to pad someone's pockets, but then again if you look closely, most aspects of modern life are.
