Question of the Day: Vitamins

What do you think of the link found between multivitamins and death rates?

Researchers at the University of Minnesota have found links between vitamin supplements, particularly iron supplements, and early death rates of women over 60. Studying information provided by 40,000 women to the Iowa Women's Health Study, they found that women who took multivitamins had higher risks for heart disease and cancer.

Do you take multivitamins? Will these findings change your multivitamin habits?

This is not the first study to suggest that taking vitamins might actually do more harm than good. There is no substitute for eating right, exercising, getting enough sleep, and not smoking. My clients are always shocked when I recommend them to NOT take vitamins, unless prescribed by their medical doctor.
