Our Take: WSJ piece on Multivitamins

Steve - Melinda Beck, who writes a column for the Wall Street Journal called "Health Journal," crafted a piece today entitled, "Multivitamins: So Many Types, So Many Labels."

While for most of the piece, Melinda reported on the supplement industry as most of her lemming counterparts do, in a negative fashion, she did provide a comment at the end that is as important a comment that you will ever see in the media with regard to dietary supplements: "Given all the complexities, it pays to discuss individual needs with a doctor, dietitian or other health professional." This is absolutely true if the health professionals has expertise in working with dietary supplements.
