‘The Matrix’ – why we need to take combined, not isolated, nutrients
Vitamin bashing is a popular sport among those who have not studied, witnessed or experienced the benefits of taking vitamins and associated cofactors at levels over and above those found in an average diet. The words in the preceding sentence were of course carefully chosen; the ‘vitamins’ to which we refer may be naturally-occurring in foods, or they may be synthetic but associated with cofactors and other bioactive compounds and enzymes in plant foods.

Vitamin B Deficiency: Why Vitamin Pills Are Not Enough

Many years ago, when I was writing my thesis, I realised that there is a major flaw in the entire concept of taking vitamins to improve one's health. I called it the missing link in vitamin therapy.

It might thus be possible to influence the pathogenesis of AD by a person's diet or dietary antioxidants.

Vitamin C, Shingles and Vaccination

The pharmaceutical industry, and many doctors, appear to be making great efforts to get as many people as possible vaccinated against shingles. Even if such an intervention was highly effective in preventing shingles, which certainly has not been shown to be the case, the information below should make it clear that such vaccinations are unnecessary. The side effects that would be suffered by a significant number of individuals need never occur in the first place. The real problem is that what is discussed below generates relatively little income for anybody in the healthcare industry. Regardless, you need to decide for yourself.
