Over half of all adults in the U.S. take multivitamins. A 2011 report from the National Center for Health Statistics estimated that 53% of American adults used some type of supplement in the years 2003 to 2006, with multivitamin/multimineral formulations being the most popular and U.S. consumers spent $28 billion on them in 2010 alone.
Why do they do it? Because the supplements make them feel better and hopefully live longer. Why do they believe that? Because years of published research that shows that vitamins and minerals significantly reduce the risk serious diseases, including heart disease, cancer, strokes, diabetes, arthritis, age related blindness, anxiety, depression, prostate disease, etc.
Suddenly, one biased editorial appears in one medical journal, written by five M.D.s, stating that using supplements and multivitamins to prevent chronic conditions is a waste of our money and could be harmful and the eager media looking for sensational headlines blindly runs away with the biased, or worse, intentionally deceptive conclusions.Details
Why does the FDA not warn women about the obvious risk of radiation associated with annual mammogram screening?

A woman ages about 4 years every time she gets a Mammogram. Although the dose of radiation is very low for each X-Ray, the cumulative effects can be life threatening.
The US Preventive Services Task Force has recently reviewed the past ten years of research on the use of Pharmaceutical Hormone Therapy. The analysis, published Monday, May 28, 2012, in the Annals of Internal Medicine, combines the results of nine previous clinical trials and found that women taking synthetic estrogen or a combination of synthetic estrogen and progestin (synthetic progesterone) lowered their risk of broken bones, but increased their chances of developing a host of other complications, including breast cancer, heart disease, strokes, gallbladder disease and dementia.Details
Currently, increasing amounts of radiation are escaping from nuclear power plants in Japan that were damaged by the recent 9.0 earthquake that hit Japan on March 10, 2011, and the tsunami that followed. Based on the best scientific information that we have, I do not believe that any significant amount of radiation from these reactors will reach populations the United States. Nevertheless, this points out the real concern that such an event could happen in the U.S.Details
