Natural food nutrients versus Dietary Supplements

Recent study claims lower risk of death and cancer from natural food nutrients versus supplements

A study from Tufts University in the United States published in April 2019 has found that there is a lower risk of death and cancer from nutrients found in natural foods as opposed to supplements.

The Tufts University article states:

Adequate intake of certain nutrients is associated with a reduction in all-cause mortality when the nutrient source is foods, but not supplements. There was no association between dietary supplement use and a lower risk of death.
In addition, excess calcium intake was linked to an increased risk of cancer death, which the researchers found was associated with supplemental doses of calcium exceeding 1,000 mg/day. The study was published on April 9 in Annals of Internal Medicine.
“As potential benefits and harms of supplement use continue to be studied, some studies have found associations between excess nutrient intake and adverse outcomes, including increased risk of certain cancers,” said Fang Fang Zhang, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University and senior and corresponding author on the study. “It is important to understand the role that the nutrient and its source might play in health outcomes, particularly if the effect might not be beneficial.”

In the wake of the study published in Circulation journal, related to Omega3 Supplements, and many other research studies which are mainly done to promote supplements, the advice of the honest scientific community to date is to remain focused on Intelligent Eating of natural foods as part of an individually suitable Balanced Diet and living a correct life style for vigorous health.

Therefore let us go for a referendum and decide on "should we remove the natural healthy food from our plates and replace them with supplements." (Although most of the natural food from our plates have already been taken away, and have been replaced by the junk food/fluids and supplements without our consent).

While voting on referendum let us keep in mind the following:
Science … Research studies are the main source of understanding facts and improving knowledge. But then health fraud scammers, the modern equivilent of the ancient Snake oil sellers and quacks, have besieged Medical science and tried to reign supreme within the Research studies field.

When it comes to health It is now becoming more and more challenging for an ordinary person to decide what to believe and what not.

No Peer Reviewed, highly alert, watchful journal is immune to publishing research studies which may later be found bogus or faulty.

Supplements may provide some benefit and at time may become essential, see Facts on Supplements and Herbs but then we should follow the advice of honest medical doctors while thankfully reading the honest scientific medical communities/experts suggestion as explained by Harvard heroes (heroes Scientist/ experts) here:


It seems that every day there appears new research findings on taking this supplement and that; this kind of research can misuse the public funds granted for carrying out research work. Concocted research is done to produce findings to support our 'Death marketing' and 'Death Management' modern civilization. Sometimes even Nations Government deliberately joins the ambiance Bogus.
