RANTS & RAVES: CHEESBURGERS VS VITAMINS

As I write, I try to determine if my thoughts are the result of old age or maybe keen observation. You be the judge.

In this past Sunday’s Philadelphia Inquirer, 12/28/14, I read an article in the Health Section about eye care vitamins. I take eye care vitamins with the hope of not becoming a macular degenerate, I’ve got enough problems. The article focused on a study done by four research centers, one being the Penn State College of Medicine, finding that very few of the eye care vitamins sold had the level of ingredients printed on the label, and some contained herbal supplements not included in these ingredients. A comment in the article relates, ‘By law, dietary supplements need not demonstrate safety or effectiveness, they merely have to refrain from claiming to treat, prevent or cure any disease.’

Okay, here’s a stretch: Does it seem that fast-food is more closely regulated than vitamins? To my knowledge, no one goes to a fast-food joint to improve their health. If they do, I hope they are under close supervision and reminded to take their meds. However, people do take vitamins to improve their health.

What am I missing here?

Here are some links where you may purchase my work.
