Multivitamins Are a Waste of Money, Doctors Say

Not sure what to think of this article. It doesn't state how large the studies were or anything. What do you think?

    I've heard this before, and it's probably right. Most of the people who take them, don't actually need them and end up having too much in their system.. I used to take a bunch of different vitamins thinking it would help as a preventative thing, until I told my doctor and he made me cut back to only taking my iron supplements. As soon as I did that, my overall health gradually improved and I went from being sick all the time to hardly ever getting sick.

    Interesting. I get what they are saying, yet most of the food people eat today is not giving them the nutrition they need so I really question the validity.

        I have always felt that they were a waste of time that is why I never bought them.

          Magen Robisonhe's probably getting some kick back from pushing those supplements.

            When I was taking the multivitamin my doctor prescribed in my first pregnancy they made me nauseous. I've never taken them again. I prefer Bebe-O prenatal vitamins now.

              Honestly, I am always cooking at home. I'm pretty much sure that the food I'm cooking is nutritious and my family are used to that already. Sometimes when I/we travel out of the country I usually have my multivitamins with us. I think better that way. W e don't really drink regularly.

                I tend too disagree with. There are many reasons adults and children don't get enough nutrition. A few are poor diet due to finances, picky eaters, dieting, how the individuals body processes certain nutrients etc..I think a good multivitamin is a good "insurance policy" to assure that all nutrients are received.
