I had some health problems due to my diet. First thing was I was eating pizza (lots of cheese = lots of calcium). Then I was drinking mineral water (lots of calcium + lots of magnesium). I cut back on the mineral water and then had a deficiency in potassium. The docs prescribe me some chelation agents to reduce my calcium level. Then when they find my potassium level low, they prescribe some potassium supplements.
I just as easily fixed the problem by cutting back on pizza and eating basic vegetables like peas and potatoes.
Nobody bothered to check my diet. You are better looking up to see what foods provide natural vitamins and eat those.
Side effects of vitamin supplements such as vitamin C are that you end up wanting to urinate even though you are already empty.

Why is this a bad thing. They also regulate our drinking water. Flint! Ohhhhhhhhh…...now I am understanding why this is bad.
Cheap supplements that prevent or cure deficiencies and don't result in hundreds / thousands of body bags a year bad.
Pharmaceutically modified synthetic supplements that can be patented and sold for 1000x the cost good. Drugs to treat the symptoms of chronic diseases caused by deficiencies good.
