Save Money, Buy Apples

Did you know that multivitamins are the most commonly used diet supplement on the market.

Did you also know that according to the recent issue in the Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers found no evidence of any benefit from multivitamin use in any of 10 categories, including no differences in the rate of breast or colon cancer, heart attack, stroke, blood clots or mortality.

"I don’t want to disparage people who take multivitamins," said Dr. Neuhouser when asked to comment, "But If they want to choose to spend their dollars elsewhere this might be a good place to do so. Perhaps fruits and vegetables.”

Further confirming the old-adage that an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
