Storyline

Almost one billion of us take a regular dietary supplement, mainly vitamin tablets. Vitamins are enthusiastically endorsed by celebrities, and vitamin-fortified foods line our supermarket shelves. But how safe are these products? Is it true that vitamins are "natural" and therefore can't do you any harm? How are they regulated, and how can parents make the right choices for their children's health. These surprisingly urgent questions are investigated by scientist Dr Derek Muller in Vitamania, the latest documentary made by Emmy Award-winning Australian filmmakers, Genepool Productions. Written by Genepool Productions

Really must watch.

most vitamins not really checked before selling.

Insightful and nothing can compete to the food our creator has given us , The only people that would not like this info is the actual people selling vitamins and making money off people.

In the quran God states we can not recreate fruit or food HE has given us. Chapter 36 verse. 33-35 In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful And a sign to them is the dead earth: We give life to it and bring forth from it grain so they eat of it. And We make therein gardens of palms and grapevines and We make springs to flow forth in it, That they may eat of the fruit thereof, and their hands did not make it; will they not then be grateful? (36:33-35)
