according to my professor in nutrition (in college), we don't need vitamins if we only eat a healthy, balanced diet... that's why i'm not keen on taking them... i only took vitamins when i am pregnant coz my unborn child need them...

FYI, according to our dietician at the hospital, we have to be careful not to overdose ourselves with vitamin c... our body only need 500mg of it and anything else is not synthesized by the body and it only spills out via the urine... the dietician also said that too much vitamin c may cause kidney stones... dunno their source tho... scared ako with what i heard coz i see dialysis patients practically everyday for the past 13 years... better safe than sorry...

according to my professors naman in Nursing, we have to take vitamins daw because even if we eat healthy and balanced diet, we don't get all the essential nutrients we need.

Some Medical Doctors don't even know what a balanced diet or even a healthy diet, they keep on telling it to their patients without knowing what it really means(it's true ha),how many know the Harvard Medical Diet and the Modified Filipino Food Pyramid of the FNRI?
