The nutritional supplement sector is not without criticism. In late 2011, the British Daily Mail newspaper, in their report on two pieces of research, one published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, suggested that the vitamin and mineral supplements do next to nothing for one's health. A 2011 review titled, 'Trash the Vitamins: Convince Your Patients,' published in Archives of Internal Medicine, even suggested dietary supplements can actually promote a higher risk for death.
Dr. Carrie Ruxton from the Health Supplements Information Service told the Daily Mail that the "findings should be treated with extreme caution given the poor methodology and lack of reliable information about the health of participants, or the type of diets consumed."
