If you are a regular on the various social media sites and an avid reader of internet news and views, there is a very high sign that you may have come across advertisements for health supplements as many times as you would have logged in. there is no dearth of companies that are producing such health tablets today and almost all of them claim that they produce them to be the best in that industry.
Companies manufacturing such tablets world over are known to make very tall claims about the miraculous effect that their tablets and pills can have. Some of them claim them to be shirt term while others claim the effect would definitely help in the long run.
The myth is busted:
Scientists around the world have attempted at various occasions to try and document the changes that a body goes through when they take supplements over a period of time. For instance, scientists have studied a group of people over a period of ten years who were on a vitamin E supplement. The claim was that prolonged use of vitamin E could delay the onset of Prostate Cancer or avoid any symptoms at all in the first place.
But when scientists studies this group of people after ten years of continuous usage of vitamin E along with other non interfering drug, it was noticed much to their dismay that there was no effect whatsoever in the chances of not contracting Prostate cancer.
Additionally, it also falsified the claim that taking health supplements such as vitamins and other minerals could in any way delay symptoms of degeneration in the body nor cause any reduction of the risk of contracting diabetes and cardiovascular diseases in people who were genetically prone to contract such diseases.
