I’m working on a health & medical discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
Advertisements for supplement companies tell us that we are not getting enough nutrients from our foods, and to ensure we are healthy we need to consume their products. But is what they are selling us the truth? For this discussion board, please read Controversy 7: Vitamin Supplements: What are the Benefits and Risks? at the end of Chapter 7 in our textbook Nutrition Concepts and Controversies, 15th ed. In your initial post, please discuss the arguments for and against taking supplements; whether or not they can protect you from chronic disease; and if you think they are needed or not. Use only the information from the assigned reading to support your statements and be sure to cite the source properly using APA formatting.
