View Full Version : ABC news starts vitamin scare
May 1st 2006, just checked to see what Abc was planning to air tonight on their version of world news, and this is it,
Many Americans always start their day with a fistful of vitamins. However, these supplements may actually do more harm than good. In the first part of our series, "Daily Dose," Dr. Tim Johnson has more on the medical community's growing concern about widespread vitamin use.

I personally have this book, which I purchased when I was somewhere in my teens. I read some parts, since it is mostly a reference, & has been my guide ever since. From there I learned how much to take of what, for what purpose or deficiency. How much is too much, the side effects, etc. Normally I purchase only good quality supplements manufactured by like Solgar, Jarrow Formulas, Country Life, Twinlab, Biochem, Life Extension, Solaray, Now, Nature's Plus, Nature's Way. And I buy at "health food", or "natural food" stores, like "Health Depot".

We are living in a fast food society, everything is accesible and disposable and we want it NOW!
The food that we eat is chemically processed, months old, cloned, waxed, preserved. Now more than ever we need to seek alternatives such as supplements or even better, organic.
By eating organic we also save the small farmers, the local produce and can hope to bring down the new world order that is Tesco. :-D
Foods SHOULD be seasonal, that's the way nature intended it. It's not normal or natural to be able to eat Strawberries all year round.
Interesting article you have there about the Chinese. I've part studied Chinese Medicine and the 5-element theory. This breaks us all down to each of the 5 elements (1 more than the other 4, which can alter due to health, age etc). Certain foods are reccommended for each of these groups and we were taught which foods these individuals should avoid or have in moderation.
St. Johns Wort is a bigger seller than Prozac in Germany yet Brussels is wanting to stage a clampdown on ALL vitamin supplements and ban the stronger ones, such as B12 1000mg. This will affect Europe and in turn will make us rely on the big drug manufacturers.
Obesity is at an all time high, this generation is already ruined.

Banning Vitamin & Mineral Supplements ??? - :-o :-o :-o
It’s a shame that we live in the world we live in. Everything is turned backwards from where it should be. Man & his greed to have it all & share none perturbs & perverts everything. Most things that are sold to us as truths are anything, but true. The thing is that human nature makes many people trust authority & those that supposedly have certain “credentials.” But things are so corrupted nowadays that nothing is what it seems, or what you think it is. Unfortunately you have to do your own research, read, & then make up your own mind as to what you want to believe, & where you want to put your trust. Man has demonstrated time over again that he can’t be trusted.
Like most of the unnecessary battles we are now fighting, you have to do your best to contribute somehow. There is no one person than can fight & win that battle all by themselves, & for the rest of us. Besides getting your own education in many things, including health, vitamins, minerals, exercise, diets, detoxification, fasting, about digestion, etc., you can send e-mails to your representatives & senators regarding certain bills that relate to supplements. Sometimes I do get e-mails sent to me where all I have to do is fill out my name, address, etc, & the e-mail already has a basic text you can add or modify & then send. Occasionally I get a letter back from the Congressman explaining how they agree or somehow consider your input. I now that it doesn’t seem like a heck of a lot, but if they don’t get anything at all, then they are just going to assume that nobody really cares anyway, & so they are going to go w/ whatever seems to be trendy for them to do.
One thing I always do, besides support my local health food store, by buying from their shop, is to talk to them I ask them if they have heard anything about banning supplements, or if they belong to any groups etc. I also let them know how I feel & that no one has the moral right to take away from us substances that are totally natural for the body, like vitamins, minerals, herbs, other supplements.
If you go into a boxing ring & let the other fighter punch you w/o blocking or punching back, pretty soon you are going to get knocked out. So if you want to stay up, you have to defend yourself, & punch back.
