Do vitamins really work?

I heard they are a waste of money that the body doesn't absorb. So confused.

I am taking multi-vitamin and b-12...can't say it's making any difference-but who knows what's going on in there!

I try to eat healthy (no pork products or fatty beef) mostly eat birds, fish and fruits/vegetables---and do a light exercise everyday.

Unfortunately I don't think we have as much a say-so in our future health as do our genetic make-up code.

Like a horse (genetics)and carriage(our actions).

In the end the horse decides where we go.

My physical told me, "sure, go ahead and take vitamins, they probably won't hurt you.". I take one vitamin per day but try to eat more healthy foods. Avoid sugars and excess fat (e.g., no red meat). Be well!

Don't make me feel guilty about my one filet mignon per month. I need it for iron deficiency. :-)
