10 Vitamins & Minerals You Probably Shouldn't Take

|According to "The Vitamin Myth" by Neena Samuel, while our bodies do of course require minerals and vitamins for a long healthy life, we do NOT need megadoses of these nutrients in pill form. The best way to obtain the benefits of vitamins is by having a healthy balanced diet of nutritious foods. Apparently, only about 3% of the population eats well enough to fit that category. One daily multivitamin is really all we need to supplement our dietary shortcomings, unless a doctor has specifically prescribed a specific supplement for a specific need. People are advised to read the label to see how much of each nutrient you're getting from your multivitamin, and one should definitely consult a doctor before embarking on any sort of vitamin regimen. And if you're taking prescription drugs then you really must talk to your doctor about it. According to the latest studies, you can get away nicely without taking these ten vitamins.|
Good luck, and please rate the quiz afterward if you have a chance.
