Nationally Recognized Health Expert Warns About the Dangers of Vitamin Supplements

Americans spend over $30 billion dollars annually on vitamins and dietary supplements but do they really know what is in the vitamins they take and give to their family each day to stay healthy?

Online PR News – 13-November-2013 – Wilmington, NC – For over 20 years as a nutritionist, Dr. David Friedman not only took handfuls of vitamins but also recommended them to his patients until one day he discovered that these vitamins contained toxic chemicals! Ingredients he believed were health enhancing, the EPA lists as being poisonous including: Acetone (also used to make nail polish), Benzene (also use to make gasoline) and Toluene (also used to make paint thinner).

What if the nutrition supplements millions of consumers rely on every day to help prevent disease could be actually bringing them closer to their grave?! Some dietary supplements have been shown to cause disease. Some examples include: Vitamin C which causes genetic damage, Vitamin E which increases risk of mortality and Calcium Supplements which are linked to heart attacks and prostate cancer.

Dr. Friedman, host of the syndicated health and wellness show “To Your Good Health Radio”, will educate audiences on choosing the best supplements and what to look for on the label so they are aware of the ingredients that would be harmful. He can also guide them to where to find out if the vitamin / supplement brands they are taking are certified for safety, purity and potency.
