Taking Supplements Is Like Charlie Brown Trying To Kick The Football … Again.

FDA investigating high lead levels in supplements. 

Here’s a quote; “I’m so surprised that there are high lead levels in dietary supplements taken for better health,” said no one ever.

How many reports have to come out about the irrelevance or outright harm that they can do? It doesn’t really seem to matter because all the Charlie Browns keep trying to kick the ball; all the Coyotes keep falling under the 2,000 ton anvil from Acme;  and all the Elmer Fudds keep trying to catch that wascally wabbit.

Taking supplements for your health may be cartoonish, but it’s not really funny because it keeps happening. People just keep purchasing bottles of whatever because it promises them that it does whatever and there’s some beautiful woman with straight white teeth in the lotus position in some Japanese garden with the sun slanting through sideways.

Just stop. They are unregulated. That means that there’s no regulations. And THAT means that they can say crazy things on them like, “these things are great for you trust me” when they’re actually irrelevant or harmful.

Don’t kick the football. It’s not going to work this time either. #PillsAreForSickPeople
