Consumer Reports highlights dietary supplement dangers

There are only two groups in America less honest and ethical than the supplements industry…politicians and celebrities. In all three cases, there are common elements…a lack of accountability, arrogance, no basis for many of the statements made and positions advanced, and an utter lack of substantive knowledge. If you are trying to improve your health by figuring out just the right mix of supplements to take, you are as stupid as they are.

The fundamentals don’t change: eat less. Eat less garbage. Exercise more. Oh, and while you are at it, maybe grow up a little bit. Take community college classes in biology, physiology, math, analytic methods, logic…you know, all the skills you don’t have when you believe the supplement industry’s inexhaustible line of bullshit.

Consumer Reports found that an estimated 23,000 people end up in the emergency room after taking supplements every year.
