The truth about vitamins
Pharmacology today has become a real business. It is not so profitable for doctors to treat people completely, because a healthy patient does not need medicines at all. But the so-called “seasonal avitaminosis” is also added to real diseases - they say, at this time it is necessary to support the body with additional portions of vitamins.
All this is nonsense. Moreover, dangerous not only your wallet, but also health. Stop drinking these vitamins and go to a normal food - it contains absolutely all the substances you need.

Vegetable oil, nuts, green vegetables - that's all you need. Not a single study on the benefits of supplementation of vitamin E to the body has been conducted.
Producers of vitamins claim that zinc is a very effective adjuvant for colds. Nothing like this.Excess zinc adversely affects the thyroid gland, so you should not take it.
Another miracle remedy that is sold in pharmacies under the guise of a prophylactic drug against the development of cancers. Is there any medical evidence for this? No one.
