Nevermind the fact that the majority of everyday "convenience foods" contain chemical additives that literally prevent the proper absorption of the
sparse nutrients they contain.
Source? The only additive with this effect I know of is olestra, and that is purely a result of increased water secretion, not necessarily interfering
with the mechanisms of vitamin absorption. Also, all products containing olestra are required to be labeled as such (and are few and far between as it
That's when the real money comes in. Chronic deficiencies means chronic diseases and that requires prescription medication to "manage" your
Not really. Vitamin deficiencies are only treated with prescription medications when there is resulting organ failure. Most often, we give people a
multivitamin, advise them to continue taking them, and thank them for the ten or twenty dollar co-pay. That's it.
This idea of acute toxicity is ridiculous to the same effect as warning about water being toxic at too high of an amount. Yes, it's true but
not before you ingest an inhuman amount.
It would be ridiculous if people didn't become acutely toxic from fat-soluble vitamins every year. Maybe you should go have a talk with these people
you claim are already vitamin deficient. when they're finished vomiting on your shoes from the effects of the toxicity, I'm sure they'll be glad to
listen to what you have to say.
And for the record, over the past 25 years there has only been 10 deaths alleged to vitamin use. And those 10 are alleged, unproven cases. This
is compared to dozens of millions of deaths caused by prescription medications that where used as prescribed and as directed, over the same time
Deaths do not equal cases. Technically, there were very few deaths from gun shot wounds in my city last year. Of course, there were over ten thousand
cases, some resulting in coma or permanent paralysis, but they weren't deaths so they don't count in your statistics, right?
Also, I would love to see your data on the "dozens of millions" of deaths caused by prescription medications. I've yet to find any such data.
