4:39 PM | Don’t be Misled, Vitamin D is Safe and Required for Health
I wonder if the American Medical Association is pleased with Dr Agus’ insinuation that we shouldn’t trust our doctor. In the CBSNews this morning, he says, “If your doctor says you should be on vitamin D, I want you to say where is the data it will benefit me and challenge for that data.” It is an extreme position for one doctor to casually dismiss evidence that 9 out of 10 Americans are not getting enough vitamin D. When Agus tells Gayle King she is unlikely to have […]

Researchers review results of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and conclude that vitamin supplements don’t help prevent chronic disease. Experts step up and explain that decades of nutrition research shouldn’t be ignored. The problem is that understanding nutrient-disease relationships requires measuring nutritional status.

Experts informed the Secretaries of Agriculture and Health and Human Services that 8 essential nutrients are under-consumed (2015 DGAC Report). About half of American adults (117 million people) have one or more preventable chronic diseases that relate to poor diet and physical inactivity.

It is finally beginning to feel like spring in the Northeastern United States.
