Suppliments bad for you? We getting bad info?
I have been taking vitamins/suppliments for years now. I am now 46 years old (male)
I have started wondering if some suppliments may be unhealthy in the long run. Sure, I know firsthand the good things that they do. I have gotten more energy, don't get colds much...etc.
But I have been wondering about long term use and maybe nerve damage for example. ... ending up in alzheimers, or parkinsions...
Or, what about constantly sending all of this human fertilizer down the digestive tract? Maybe you could increase chances for colon cancers or something? Creating conditions for bacteria or something bad to bloom in the colon...
Am I dreaming too much?
The other concept I am thinking about is just the basic information we get about suppliments.
I imagine that there is lots of reasearch money to find out all of the good things about suppliments, because it is a business. The industry needs to sell these things, and needs to provide research results that show why it is good to take suppliments.
But who can make a buck from research that shows anything bad comming from a particular suppliment? Not much funding there...
