....and unhealthy people may lack a vitamin or two because of an unbalanced diet over an extended period. That's when it would be handy to be able to buy them.*
*Yes you can get all the nutrients you require by eating the right food. Unfortunately, for that last couple of decades, obtaining nutritious food is getting more difficult as corporations like Campbells and Nestlé refine genetically modified corn syrup, soya and salt and fill boxes, bottles, cans and tubes with it and sell it as breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Big Pharma want the natural therapy market and the best way to get it is to strangle it with expensive regulation because they know regulation and have deep pockets.

The cry for more regulation on natural dietary supplements is propagander. The Banksters, Monsanto and Big Pharma pull the strings and the regular media and beurocrats do the dancing.

I would say: watch the diseases of your family, watch your weight ( eat about half of what you would like to eat and drink.....) and excercise ( can be mildly) each day. That is doable.

A multi vitamin can handle most of what people are missing in their diet. It is inconclusive if those actually help or not.

We choose the packaged foods. Almost Every store has fresh food available to purchase and consume. I buy prepared lunches for work and prepared dinner for BB. BB gets organic only and I read the labels for everything. I try and limit preservatives and artificial ingredients. You pay a bit more but it is worth it to me. Most nights we have a large salad with some combination of carrots, radish, cucumbers, zucchini, summer squash, pepper, or onion. I bring 2-3 servings of fruit to work.

Try something like myfitnesspal and log what you eat for a week. It will probably amaze you how quickly the calories add up and the amount of crap most of us take in. I log daily to keep myself on track.

It takes a few months of missing a vitamin for it to have any effect on the body. Then once the missing vitamin is consumed, the body uses it to try to repair what may have been done because of the lack. Often it can't. But conditions such as scurvy (the lack of vitamin C,) take several months to set in, and if not allowed to continue, will reverse itself in a day... Most people do NOT need to take vitamins every day. The dosage required by the body is so minute, and with no need for daily re-supply, that taking a multi-vitamin once a week will serve most people's needs. If you eat a somewhat balance diet, even if it is processed foods, you will meet 99% of your vitamin requirements. Most vitamin excess is excreted by the body; C, B's, E, D, can't be overdosed orally no matter how many you take. They are excreted in sweat and urine. Vitamin A and K can be, but you'd need to eat a lot of them. Remember, Vitamin K dose cause sterility in rats, so of you are a rodent, try to limit your intake of kale, collards, spinach, and turnip greens.

The European Patent Office not only gave Monsanto a patent for broccoli seeds but also the "severed broccoli head" and the "plurality of broccoli plants ... grown in a field of broccoli" - in other words, broccoli in all of its natural forms.

Discrete
Spoiler:
adjective: individually separate and distinct


and Discreet
Spoiler:
adjective: careful and circumspect in one’s speech or actions, especially in order to avoid causing offense or to gain an advantage


are NOT interchangeable! They may sound the same, they may even have the same letters, but one is not a spelling mistake of the other!

Seriously, that's the third 'well-known' book I've read recently that uses 'discrete' when what the author really meant was 'discreet'. Where can I apply to be an editor? There must be a shortage in the publishing world...


PS By the laws of the internet forum gods, there will now be multiple spelling and grammar errors inserted into my post as soon as I hit the 'submit' button. Please don't point them out to me.

There is no way that ANY broccoli is a "balanced" diet.

Same goes for tofu and lima beans!

It's good to remember that the founder of the Macrobiotic movement did die from malnutrition...
