A few weeks ago on the morning news, a health ‘expert’ claimed that baby boomers are taking vitamins, but that the scientific evidence of any benefit is inadequate.
I’m one of these vitamin gobbling baby boomers and I don’t need a scientist to tell me when something is working for me. Sure, I would like scientific evidence, however, I expect I would be toothless and in my grave before the scientific community got around to carrying out useful research on holistic health practice.
I don’t mean to be disrespectful to scientists. They do fantastic work and our quality of life would be utterly grim without them. Indeed, I would dead if it weren’t for antibiotics. However, while they are great at developing drugs to treat serious illness, they are not great at preventing ill health.
