If a portion of your paycheck goes to buying vitamins, new research suggests you may want to rethink your next purchase.
Many people believe daily supplements will keep them healthy, but a panel of experts reviewing 3 studies on multivitamins finds no evidence supplements prevent chronic disease or death and they should be avoided.
Previous research has shown beta carotene, vitamin E and possibly high doses of Vitamin A can increase death and that other antioxidants have no benefits.
The council for responsible nutrition disagrees with the latest review and argues supplements are an appropriate option for consumers who aren't getting enough nutrients from food.
