JUST EAT A PEZ EVERY DAY, YOU'LL SAVE YOURSELF SOME MONEY:

Taking multi-vitamin pills 'does nothing for our health' (DAILY MAIL, 12/26/11)

Researchers spent more than six years following 8,000 people and found that those taking supplements were just as likely to  have developed cancer or heart disease as those who took an identical-looking dummy pill.
And when they were questioned on how healthy they felt, there was hardly any difference between the two groups.

Experts said the study - one of the most extensive carried out into vitamin pills - suggested that  millions of consumers may be wasting their money on supplements.

Many users fall into the category of the 'worried well' - healthy  adults who believe the pills  will insure them against deadly  illnesses - according to  Catherine Collins, chief dietician  at St George's Hospital in London.
