Why Many Vitamin Studies are Absolutely Worthless

Does vitamin E naturally help protect against the effects of aging, or does it lead to liver damage and complications associated with lung cancer? Well, it depends on what the study authors want to tell you. The synthetic version of vitamin E is a petrochemically derived analogue of natural vitamin E that is capable of disrupting the endocrine system, whereas the natural form of vitamin E is effective against aging, oxidative stress, and hundreds of other conditions. The truth of the matter is that many — if not most — of vitamin studies are completely worthless, as they use isolated synthetic vitamins or low quality multivitamin supplements loaded with toxic fillers and synthetic ingredients.

Study authors could use high quality food-based multivitamins without any fillers or harmful ingredients, but they generally do not. Whether this is due to nutritional ignorance regarding the true nature of the pharmaceutical company-dominated supplement industry (think highly-popular Centrum, which we will soon discuss) or the fact that these researchers truly think that essential nutrients are damaging to your health, the fact of the matter is that very few studies utilize the right form of vitamins.

Synthetic and Carcinogenic Ingredients, Not Real Vitamins

When analyzing the ingredients within Centrum, the number one top selling vitamin brand, it is easy to see how studies can so easily tote the dangers of ‘vitamins’ when in reality they are actually exposing the dangers of synthetic ingredients and fillers that are known to damage your body. It should be no surprise to you that Centrum is produced by the Wyeth company, which is now a part of Pfizer. Here are some of the ingredients contained in the top selling multivitamin Centrum, along with their adverse effects:

BHT: a fat soluble compound used in jet fuels, rubber, petroleum products, electrical transformer oil, and embalming fluid. Research has linked BHT to lung cancer, bladder cancer, DNA damage, and gastric cancer.

Boric Acid: a chemical oftentimes used as an antiseptic, insecticide, or flame retardant. Found to cause DNA damage.

Synthetic Vitamin A Acetate: a petrochemically produced byproduct that is capable of causing birth defects.

Cupric Sulfate: Used as an herbicide, fungicide and pesticide, copper sulfate is produced by treating copper metal with hot concentrated sulfuric acid or its oxides with sulfuric acid.

Capricorn New Moon, December 24, 2011 (Cathy Pagano)

New Moon is the secret time of the Moon's cycle when the new seed wanting to blossom within us sparks into life. A Capricorn new Moon sparks a new vision of our society as well as a new vision of how we want to live our lives. We attend to our personal dharma or responsibility to our society and to our standing in our community. What do we want to contribute to the whole? Saturn rules Capricorn, asking us to take up our social responsibility and our personal authority, and do what is right. This is the theme for this coming year. These are the seed ideas that will take us through this pivotal year of 2012.

Since Pluto has already gone over this degree in Capricorn, this new Moon occurs in newly fertile ground. Think back to what you were going through when Pluto went over 3* Capricorn from early 2009 through late 2010. Is it coming to fruition now? And transiting Pluto at 8* Capricorn is part of the new Moon energy, so watch what things slip away from your life this Moon cycle. Ask yourself what aspects of society no longer serve our collective life.

The Sabian Symbol for 3* Capricorn is: A human soul, in its eagerness for new experiences, seeks embodiment. Here is the image of the Child of Light born in the midst of great darkness. Not only is the Earth and our physicality full of spirit, our soul is our unique spark of Spirit that wants to experience life here on Earth. We all have a powerful yearning to increase the depth of our contacts with others, for it is "soulful' connections that bring us happiness. Since this image comes in the sign of Capricorn, we have to suppose that this soul incarnates in a certain social structure to experience what humans can do as a group to make life enjoyable and fulfilling. And when that social structure needs renovating, it is up to each of us to help leave it in better and stronger shape than we found it in.
