The data from an interesting six year study shows that money people are spending on dietary supplements is  mostly going to waste. Check out the full story from the NIH director’s blog here

Heed your parents advice: : eat a balanced diet, including plenty of fruits, veggies, and healthy sources of calcium and protein. Don’t smoke. Use alcohol in moderation. Avoid recreational drugs. Get plenty of exercise.

Stay healthy and save your money, see you in class!
