Vitamins are useless, according to three studies released Monday, and published in the medical journal Annals of Internal Medicine. The conclusion drawn by all three studies is that vitamins are basically a waste of money and do not prevent chronic illness or disease.
Millions of Americans buy vitamins every year in the hope of preventing disease or to make up for lack of nutrients in the diet. Many take vitamins as a preventative measure, and because they feel good taking them. Most people who take vitamins are generally healthy.
