Default The dietary pursuit of disease overwhelms the power of nutritional supplements

Catchy title huh? This is a short article by David Seaman, one of the foremost nutritional experts in the Chiropractic profession. I believe most here would agree in large part with his general stance on the nutritional health of America.

Regretfully, our diets really are this dismal, and this fact must be taken into consideration when looking at supplement and drug trials in the treatment or prevention of disease. With this in mind, I am surprised when any nutritional supplement study shows a beneficial outcome. From a realistic perspective, how can giving a few milligrams of policosanol or allicin (from garlic) function to counteract 2,500 calories worth of disease promotion?
