Vitamin Supplements

This article speaks to one reason why vitamin supplements became so popular. If a prophet is an expert from out of town with slides, Linus Pauling would have qualified. A fully committed authority figure backed by the profit motive is a brew to spawn an industry and it is familiar story in America. Cure-all elixirs with ample alcohol content have been around for a long time. They were popular on the western frontier. And what ever happened to Hadacol?

If someone were proven to be low in an essential vitamin it would be beneficial to replace it. But that would be done best with proper food. There are too many people who eat a poor diet deficient in vegetables, fruit and whole grains but believe supplements can make up the difference. The health status in the United States is not an endorsement for vitamin supplements.
