Weight watchers these days has become very politically correct.
Their handout material includes the recommendation that members take a multivitamin pill every day.
Our most reliable medical and epidemiological authority, the CDC, months ago announced that multi-vitamins were a waste of money and in some cases such as the use of calcium for osteoporosis were counter productive.
I will keep you posted on how many months for weight watchers to incorporate this authoritative notice.
I have never taken multi-vitamins. My simple reason was that, from the earliest days of vitamin stores, I noticed that the salespeople were pasty faced and wimpy. I never noticed healthy athletic people attributing their health to vitamins.
I also noticed that a healthy balanced diet included far more of all the necessary daily vitamins than any one seemed to need.
So where does the need for more vitamins, outside the realm of food, come from? Paranoia, hysteria?
