In the debate about supplements, I’m often asked: “You can’t possibly think that we can get all our nutrients from food with our depleted soil?” I’d like to flip that to say: “You can’t possibly think that you can put all of nature’s bounty into a pill!”
It’s hard to choose what to eat. There’s so much conflicting information about what’s good and bad that we often fall back on what’s easy.
Fat is bad and carbs are good … No, some fats are OK and carbs are bad. Well, may be some carbs are good after all. Vitamins – who knows? So take supplements. Ah-oh, maybe they don’t really help. Yikes!
