Well I certinly am.
The things I thought were possibly good for me are not so goodafter all.

Yukult and pro biotic drinks are now useless. Also FULL of sugar
Fish Oil does nothing and tests reveal possible (not certain yet) links to postrate cancer
vitamin D. in the dosse suggested dangerous, inks to cancer
all vitamins dangerous in tablet form as they are more than body needs


Many of the things we take for our health are not so good. I think theres a good side though, Its time these over priced multi natioal health food supplements and pills potions got a swift kick up the bum. I should have read their claims more carefully. Vague unsubstaniated phrase like scientifically approved

are you referring to the recent Four corners show on supplements?
it was incredible, the entire industry is a scam.
had to laugh at the DNA tested herbal supplements that contained nil amounts of the claimed herbs.
anything out of china has got to very very suspect.

My wife takes fish oil tablets. If she gets prostate cancer, I'm going to be very concerned.

rancid fish oil tablets were featured in the program.
they contain lipids that cause cancer i think

A small dosage (1000mg/daily) of fishoil was prescribed for me by my Cardiologist some time ago.
It has cured my osteoarthritis in my left hand and I am once again able to hold a golf-club without having to search for it in the trees.

We are all built differently and not everything works for everybody!

Mr Dukey of the Liquids, well you may laugh but if your fingers can't grip the golf club hard enough then the club will fly further than the ball and can easily finish up in the trees........end of lesson ONE!

The Four Corners programme scared me.
I take only Vitamin D now, because my doctor said I had a deficiency and advised it.
