Doctors are advising people to stop taking multivitamins because taking them does not prevent or cure cancer or slow down aging. I guess preventing goiter, scurvy, beriberi, pellagra and the like does not count for anything anymore.
There are thousands of important nutrients we obtain from whole foods. A multivitamin contains the two dozen most important nutrients. Who would think that the multivitamin could prevent or cure cancer? Doctors. Those who are supposed to be shepherding us toward sensible choices.
So let’s make people more deficient in the two dozen most important nutrients – that will fix their medical problems! Brilliant doctoring!
Also, who does not realize that there is an invalid control group here? The control group, those who do not take multivitamin supplements, are still eating heavily supplemented, processed food.
