ENCORE: Media Distortion and Deception Against Supplements, Part 1
June 11, 2020
A recent study was widely reported by the media as demonstrating that “most vitamins are ineffective." Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, author of numerous books including "From Fatigued to Fantastic," "Pain-Free 1-2-3," and his latest, "Diabetes is Optional," weighs in with a critique. He says it’s part of a larger problem of media distortion and deception. His suggestion: Tune out, and look for more reliable sources of information. The study in question could actually be interpreted as support for supplements for cardiovascular disease prevention because folic acid and B12 reduced the risk of stroke. Teitelbaum critiques the use of cheap, generic multivitamins in the study. It didn’t look at natural broad-spectrum mixed tocopherols or carotenoids, and it ignored the role that significant amounts of magnesium, vitamin K, or vitamin D might play in prevention. He then outlines a more comprehensive approach for consumers to adopt to obtain balanced health information. His new favorite botanical for diabetes prevention and treatment: Hintonia Latiflora.
