Multivitamin researchers say "case is closed" after studies find no health benefits

Enough” with the multivitamins already.

That’s the message from doctors behind three new studies and an editorial that tackled an oft-debated question in medicine: Do daily multivitamins make you healthier?

After reviewing the available evidence and conducting new trials, the authors have come to a conclusion of “no.”

“We believe that the case is closed -- supplementing the diet of well-nourished adults with (most) mineral or vitamin supplements has no clear benefit and might even be harmful,” concluded the authors of the editorial summarizing the new research papers, published Dec. 16 in the Annals of Internal Medicine. “These vitamins should not be used for chronic disease prevention. Enough is enough.”

They went on to urge consumers to not “waste” their money on multivitamins.

“The ‘stop wasting your money’ means that perhaps you're spending money on things that won't protect you long term,” editorial co-author Dr. Edgar Miller, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, told CBS News’ chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook. “What will protect you is if you spend the money on fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, low fat dairy, things like that ..exercising would probably be a better use of the money.”

Just like the whole organic foods are not better for you "study".
It's to discredit.
There's a bill being proposed to regulate all supplements, so they will have to be available with prescription.
Codex alimentarius makes this power grab possible.
Most vitamins are now made by big pharm, and are full of filler sh#it anyway, so of course there's no benefit in those, but if you buy stuff made by reputable companies, the stuff is pure, and of course has benefit.
We are fighting it all, but it's an uphill battle.

It's this Durbin arsehole who won't let it go.

We beat the bill in 2011,but he just reintroduced it. This, like Gmos, we're given power by Obama allowing codex to become law in the USA.

Because well-nourished adults don't need supplements. Duh. What about the effects on people who need it?
