Facts versus. Fiction: Which are which?
This morning I received the letter below from a reader of my newsletter. It is presented in its entirety.
"Dear Dr. Charlap:
Thanks for E-mailing me your newsletters as I enjoy keeping up with different points of view regarding health care. However, as you probably know, I disagree with you on the subject of vitamin supplements and natural remedies. The following is an article I came across that is only one example of how vitamin supplementation is helpful to health. I take supplements to help with several health problems of my own. I'd much rather do this than be dependent on drugs when that can be avoided. As far as I can see, it is drugs in many instances that are harmful to health, not vitamin supplements. So, maybe we can agree to disagree. There are many good things offered by MDPrevent, and perhaps in the future I may look into some of them.
