Nutrition Pills Linked To Cancer And Heart Disease

A few days ago, one of the leading newspapers in Sweden had an article about vitamin and nutrition pills. But it was a critical article.

A Danish study shows that high concentrations of vitamins A, E and β-carotene are linked to heart disease and even cancer. The dosages in the hundreds of different pills and nutritional products on the market are highly concentrated and are said to upset the natural balance in the body. We cannot use more "building stones" than what we individually need in order to survive.

Of course the tests have probably been done with a lot higher concentrations than normal. However, we all have our own amount of nutritional intake each day. It is at least something one needs to consider if it is needed or not.

If you think that using more pills are better for your body than to eat more fruit, think again. There seems that each individual might have their own specific levels in accordance with the body's own balance. To much of the good becomes bad for you and less of what is considered to be good is bad for you.

If you think that you need more of some substance or mineral, talk with your local doctor or someone who knows about these things and who can conduct properly structured test. But if you just feel a bit out of focus, tired and stressed out, you generally probably need to eat better food and fruit, more exercise and spend more hours sleeping.

I'm going to eat more fruit from now on.
