Vitamin pills are a waste of money, US experts say
Illinois: Scientists and nutritionists say in unison that a “combination of vitamin supplements” can not keep you healthy, but a waste of money, while exercise and diet are the only way to health and fitness.
According to scientists, there is no clear evidence that multivitamins and micronutrient supplements can prevent heart disease and cancer. Scientists have written an editorial on this and said that there is no ‘clear evidence’ of reduction or prevention of one vitamin, two or many combinations of vitamins in these two diseases, but only pregnant women can benefit.
Experts say pharmaceutical companies are luring people to buy کے 50 billion worth of vitamins in 2021 alone. People consider vitamins to be magic pills, which is not true. Dr. Jeffrey Linder, of the Department of Medicine at Northwestern University, says that exercise and a healthy diet have much better effects.
In this regard, the team of scientists has considered a total of 54 research and studies that continue year after year and a significant amount of money was spent on them. Scientists have made it clear that we are not banning vitamin supplements, but are saying that we should not expect too much from them.
Experts say that some supplements can increase the risk of cancer. Beta-carotene tablets can potentially cause lung cancer, while vitamin E has not been shown to play a significant role in preventing heart disease or cancer.
Fruits and vegetables are very useful
Experts say that eating fruits and vegetables is very beneficial for human beings and they can reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. This is because fruits and vegetables contain vitamins, nutrients, fiber and other phytochemicals that work together better than medicines. In contrast, isolated vitamins lose their effectiveness.
However, folic acid has tremendous benefits in pregnant women, which has been emphasized. Folic acid plays an important role in a child’s healthy development.
Exercise and proper nutrition
Dr. Jenny Jia, co-author of the report, says that lifestyle changes can prevent disease. He emphasized the need for a simple and healthy diet because health is not a priority in American industrial diets. He also emphasized exercise, which he described as “magic.”
