Well here is an interesting article. Supplements have done no harm when taken as suggested. The same cannot be said for many allopathic means. Side effects are all too common even at correct doses. This report is rife with the statistics. I always laugh when watching a commercial for a new drug that then lists all these side effects in that really fast voice over a picture of a happy smiling family. Many are actually worse than what you take the medication for. Please consult your doctor if you experience an erection lasting longer than four hours!!!!

Wish this was not in conspiracy, although one does exist to keep humans nutritionally illiterate so perhaps this is wholly appropriate.
