The previous Great NEWS post asked Are Compact Florescent Lights a Health Hazard and today we ask Are Multivitamins and Supplements Health Hazards? We are being advised and advertised to take multivitamins and supplements to maintain our health. We are told our foods no longer contain the vitamins and minerals they once did so we must supplement our diet with them to remain healthy. Maybe we should ask better questions and research the reasons why this has happened before buying synthetic minerals, supplements and vitamins created in a laboratory. There are many important decisions and distinctions regarding which supplements and vitamins are the best for us long term. Today we will reveal some important considerations to help you determine and decide “Are Multivitamins and Supplements Health Hazards?”
The Great NEWS Coach Health Hazard series is written to help people be even more aware of common health hazards. Many products in our high tech world can negatively influence our health. How we choose to respond will determine how happy and healthy we will be. Most people lack awareness regarding how small decisions directly affect every thing that occurs in our life. Our behaviors, beliefs and biology run our life in the same way that programmed hardware, software and operating systems run a computer. Choose wisely.
Are Supplements and Vitamins Health Hazards?
Multivitamins and supplements can be purchased from discount stores, distributors, doctors, drug stores, grocery stores, gyms, health food stores, internet sites, Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) companies, network marketing companies, pharmacies and seminars. Minerals and vitamins are added to fortify bread and cereals. Unfortunately most people do not invest the time to read the labels or research how supplements and vitamins are made before purchasing them. As a result they are often putting themselves and their family at risk. Most people buy supplements and vitamins thinking they are totally safe and use them without realizing there may be serious risks and side effects.
The giant drug, food, supplement and vitamin companies have done an amazing job of promising and promoting the benefits of their synthetic chemical and compound based supplements and vitamins without really educating the public on the ingredients and manufacturing process. We are being told that synthetic vitamins are basically the same as natural whole food vitamins. Since natural vitamins originally came from organic whole foods that were created by our creator does that mean that humans can copy the complex food ingredients and replicate them in a science laboratory exactly the same? It is highly unlikely that man made chemistry can match the quality and standards of the creator of the universe.
It is highly doubtful to me and many common sense oriented adults that man made vitamins created in a lab can be as potent, protective, pure and safe as natural organic whole food vitamin sources. There are simply too many complicated and synergistic components with vast variables like: amino acids, antioxidants, bio-available co-factors, enzymes, co-enzymes, essential fats, ionic bonds, minerals, protein molecules, special structures and trace elements to be replicated and reproduced in labs to provide the same health and nutritional benefits.
Common sense would indicate there is no way to manufacture and replicate natural vitamins from nutrient dense organic whole foods (animals and plants) while using coal tar, magnesium stearate, petrochemicals, sodium selenite, sodium selenate, stearic acid and other non organic ingredients to produce synthetic vitamins with the same potency and purity as natural ones.
A significant percentage of the drugs, supplements and vitamins being sold are being manufactured and outsourced in China. When you become aware of the contaminated air, food, health, soil and water quality in China it is evident we should avoid cutting corners to buy cheap synthetic supplements and vitamins from a country heavily contaminated.
People around the world have bought the story about needing supplements and vitamins for health and accepted synthetic versions as being safe and substantially the same. The majority of people do not understand that our body has evolved over thousands of years to absorb and utilize natural minerals and vitamins from our food and water.
While some synthetic minerals and vitamins may be absorbed by our body we do not know the long term consequences of these artificial chemicals being there and locking into receptor sites meant for the real deal and not a synthetic fake. There are too many unknown dangers and risks from using these artificial chemicals and compounds that may be doing more harm than good. People have been brain washed to believing these synthetic supplements and vitamins are efficient and safe in spite of significant research that shows that all synthetic chemicals have adverse reactions and side effects. Unfortunately people do not hear the full story about the risks of low cost synthetic supplements and vitamins which the drug industry conveniently covers over. Would you continually put contaminated and dirty gas and oil in your car and run it for years and expect your engine to last? Of course we would not do that. Unfortunately most people take better care of their car than their body.
Most big name supplements and vitamins are made by big name drug and pharmaceutical companies that are making big bucks by getting us to consume their products instead of consuming healthy organic whole food sources instead.
