Are Vitamins Worth It?

Vitamins are a 27 billion dollar a year industry in the US.

I take a lot of vitamins, around ten pills a day. When I shared this with my doctor he replied, “Congratulations, you have the most expensive urine in the city.” This seems to be the opinion of most American doctors: vitamins are a waste of money. My doctor said there’s little scientific evidence that vitamins do anything positive for your health.
