Have you heard about the recent research about vitamins and supplements are actually bad for us and do you think we should stop taking them?

No: Vitamins, in the right amount, are generally considered a good thing to do. I certainly wouldn't stop them based in a single report. Additionally, it is too broad a statement to infer that all vitamins should be stopped. More likely is the research may have addressed taking too much of one particular vitamin. Moderation is key; speak w/ your doctor for specifics as they pertain to your health. ...Read more
