VITAMINS: A MULTIBILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY

vitaminreview

Nutrient supplements have exploded over the past twenty to thirty years. It has become abundantly clear why such a huge nutrient supplement industry has emerged. Consumers want to continue eating their customary foods, and popping a few supplements which makes people feel better about the potentially adverse health effects caused by their diet.

What are the vitamins you invest in? Do they contain the ingredient “Cellulose” and or “Titanium Dioxide” Cellulose aka/ “wood pulp” often found in cereals, as well as many processed foods such as baked goods, cheese, crackers, and even ice cream. Now how many restaurants do you think buy some of these similar foods to put on their menu? This is why I prefer eating in.

Our bodies can not digest either of these toxic ingredients. Yet, we continue to find it in a large amount of processed foods and vitamins. Marketing these days is tricky “natural” may not always mean healthy.

Living a healthy lifestyle consists of avoiding all foods that contain the ingredient CELLULOSE. For more information on tricky advertising check out the class-action lawsuit against Taco Bell.

READING LABELS: Cellulose can be called by these different names on the ingredients label MCC OR Microcrystalline Cellulose, Cellulose Gum, or Carboxymethyl Cellulose.

Titanium Dioxide is another ingredient you will want to avoid as it is a known cancer causing toxin.  Often found in cosmetics, vitamins, sunscreen…to name a few.

Embracing supplements means the media can tell people what they want to hear and doctors have something to offer their patients. As a result, a multibillion-dollar supplement industry is now part of our nutritional landscape, and the majority of consumers have been duped into believing that they are buying health.
