It seems like everybody has a different point of view on what you should do. Case in point, multi-vitamins. Ever since I was knee high to a grasshopper it seems like people have been beating into our heads that we need to take them. The soil is depleted, you don’t get enough from food, you need anti-oxidants to fight disease, your teeth will rot, your hair will fall out, here, put these in your mouth, now!
