There is a continuing controversy on whether nutritional supplements are beneficial, useless or even harmful. The media generally tends to highlight the negative opinions of health officials on the use of supplements. Carrie Gann of ABC News does the same in “Should You Take a Multivitamin?,” emphasizing various views, all more or less implying that the idea behind multivitamins does not actually have any scientific basis. The article goes as far as to include a biased opinion that a certain ‘nutraceutical’ industry first conceived the idea of selling multivitamins solely for generating profits. What do you think?
