Anybody else watch this tonight? Hopefully those in the US can view it as well. www.cbc.ca/fifth/
- The episode is called Vitamins and Supplements: Magic Pills
"As many as three out of four Canadians use natural health products. From herbal remedies to minerals, vitamins and other supplements, it’s a billion dollar industry that includes everyone from Big Pharma to Mom and Pop operations. They're products packed with promises, but what’s actually in the bottle? Could we be taking too much? And could they actually be harmful to your health?"
The best is when they sit down and talk to the company 'scientists' and owners and ask for studies that substantiate their claims etc... and none of them can actually answer the question. To funny.
However the real one people are waiting to watch is the Marketplace Show www.cbc.ca/marketplace/episodes/2015-2016/supplements
Seems it's been delayed from airing, but their plan was/is to name names and publish their findings. So call out those products that did not meet their claims and those that didn't even contain what they said they do like protein powders and so on. They were also going to publish those that do, which would be great information.
It's something I think many on here have been waiting for. Perhaps keep an eye out for it to air - or one of us from Canada can copy their results and post when they do in fact publish/air.
The whole natural health industry must be totally freaking out right now... haha.
