Vi­ta­min Pills: Mir­a­cle Or Myth?

Chinchilla News - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

Mon­day, sbs, 8.30pm

There are whole chemist aisles ded­i­cated to them, so it’s no won­der that the vi­ta­min pill has re­cently come un­der a crit­i­cal spot­light. There have been quite a few doc­u­men­taries ded­i­cated to the ques­tion of whether pill-pop­ping these sup­ple­ments is ac­tu­ally do­ing more harm than good, and now ge­neti­cist Dr Giles Yeo joins the de­bate. Worth bil­lions world­wide and of­ten un­reg­u­lated, the ever-present vi­ta­min pill cer­tainly de­serves a watch­ful eye. Adopt­ing a deceptively sim­ple ap­proach, Yeo takes a look at who re­ally needs vi­ta­mins by ex­am­in­ing how they com­pare to what peo­ple con­sume in their ev­ery­day diet.
