Swift reaction from The Canadian Health Food Association concerning a U-S study on multi-vitamins.
The Canadian group is denouncing the study that claims multi-vitamins don’t do much to help stave off chronic illnesses.
The C-H-F-A says multi-vitamins and other natural health products are needed to bridge the gap in nutrition for Canadians who cannot meet their nutritional needs from food alone.
The study was published in the journal “Annals of Internal Medicine” and claimed there is no evidence that vitamins prevent illness or ward off dementia and can actually cause harm if they are overdosed.
