Vitamin supplements don’t cure cold, they don’t prolong your life and is some cases they may actually even be harmful. Vitamins are a collection of various micronutrients that are essential for your body to function normally, except that by definition vitamins are nutrients that we only need a tiny little bit of and normally we get plenty of them from the food we eat.You might say that getting more of them should be better for you, but vitamins are sorta like cats, if you have no cats you’ll be lonely if you have one or two cats you’ll feel better, but that’s enough cats no one needs to load up on cats. Just like with cats you don’t want to over do it, studies show that vitamins like A D or E can actually make you sick.Remember airborne? It was a cold medicine invented by a school teacher that was marketed saying that it prevents you from getting a cold by touching the magazines on airplanes. That was a lie. Airborne is a cocktail of vitamin C that was marketed as a cure for the common cold but in 2006 they were sued for false advertising and ended up paying $23,000,000 in reality 15 different studies proved that vitamin C does not cure the common cold.These thoughts that vitamins are cure all came from a man name Linus Pauling he was the only person im history to be awarded 2 solo nobel prizes but in the early 70’s Pauling became obsessed with the concept of immortality which lead to his fascination with vitamins. He began claiming that megadoses of vitamin C could cure the common cold, prolong your life and even cure cancer and because he was a popular scientist the media trusted him. But repeated studies have proven pauling was wrong. there is no medical basis for his claims and in 1994 he actually died of cancer, the disease he claimed vitamins would cure. Pauling was the michael jackson of nutrition, he totally changed the game, we had no idea how crazy he was and 40 years later we’re still humming his tunes. Thats bad. You know it.
