Clement, Brian R. Ph.D. — Do We Really Need Dietary Supplements?

Posted on November 30th, 2009 in American Society,Food,Genetics,Health,Science by LeGov

Do we need supplements to our diet? Does a normal balanced diet of food supply us with the nutrition we need? Our guest in this edition of Radio Curious argues that the supplement industry is confusing and misinformed, encouraging consumers to buy supplements we don’t need. Brian R. Clement is the author of “Supplements Exposed: The Truth They Don’t Want You To Know About Vitamins, Minerals, And Their Effects On Your Health.” His book examines the dietary supplement industry, what so called natural supplements from his perspective really contain and how they can affect our health for better and worse.

The book recommended by Brian Clement was “The New Gold Standard,” by Joseph Michelli.
