This is the BIGGEST outright Lie I have read in a while - all of these reported side effects are LIES. And note vitamin C is included in the list of those not to be taken without a doctor recommending it!!!

Do Not Take These 5 Vitamin Supplements!

Its is more than appalling.. Is there a better word -- heinous? These people have no qualms about lying to the public to protect medical and pharmaceutical financial interests - the people behind and spreading these false reports, that is. (The people who publish these falsehoods are pawns - with large Swiss bank accounts. Internet freedom gives some hope, because the truth at least has a way to get out....)

here are today's examples

ENTER STAGE RIGHT

The Foundation's new Vice President found Joe Rogan's podcasts that zoom in on this problem. Not a bad idea to share the following:

How big pharma deceives you and keeps you unhealthy for profit


And the root of the problem are the insane advertising revenues that allowing drug advertisements direct to consumers creates for the mainstream media.

The key message is that for most of the population, it's best to get these vitamins and minerals from the diet, from foods. That's where they're best absorbed, and they're in the optimal biological ratios.


Which would be wonderful if everyone could eat a diet like their ancient ancestors in the wild.. Since we live in the real world, supplements are health insurance.

Vitamin pills and supplements aren't helping most people, doctors say

They aren't helping most people who don't take them.

Health experts say food supplements like vitamin C create costly vitamin pee
http://www.straitstimes.com/lifestyle/st-scroll-back-health-experts-say-food-supplements-like-vitamin-c-creates-costly-vitamin

Like to contact Denise CHong because the REAL expensive pee is caused by all the Big Pharma medications that are pee'd out. So much so as polluting the water tables! (If enough people peed out vitamin C - that might help with the Big Pharma pollution.)

Lies and more lies from big pharma's favorite mouth piece - the New York Times


Older Americans Are ‘Hooked’ on Vitamins

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/03/well/older-americans-vitamins-dietary-supplements.html


But just a few years later, she found herself reversing course, after rigorous clinical trials found neither vitamin E nor folic acid supplements did anything to protect the heart. Even worse, studies linked high-dose vitamin E to a higher risk of heart failure, prostate cancer and death from any cause.


It is no wonder that American's believing in the honesty of their free press are so confused! In every case we have ever examined, these pharmaceutical funded "hit-studies" are completely flawed, i.e., the conclusions either do not match the data or are otherwise scientifically baseless. To review one of the more famous, after a '"Finish study" revealed that beta carotene was correlated with lung and other cancers, other researchers with integrity drew an entirely opposite conclusion.

Yale researchers, went back over the same Finish data, explained the flaw in isolating a single element from the data, and revealed that the data when taken as a whole did not show that beta carotene was related in any way to cancers.

The first "hit piece" against beta carotene made news. The Yale correction was a minor blip, generally ignored.

Its the same old story, biased studies cherry picking data that hurts supplements. These phony studies are apparently marketing efforts to prop up sales of pharmaceutical medications by scaring the population away from the low cost way to better health.)

Soluble Fiber, Not Vitamin C, Protects Mice Against The Flu Virus
http://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/soluble-fiber-not-vitamin-c-protects-mice-against-the-flu-virus/

What do we know about mice that makes them SUBSTANTIALLY different from we humans regarding vitamin C?



Hint for the uniformed - mice, rats, and the vast majority of species on planet Earth make their own vitamin C in the livers and kidneys! Alas, we humans cannot and must rely on our diet..
