HERE ARE SOME GREAT REFERENCES FOR LEARNING! WHEN YOU LOOK INTO SOME OF THESE STUDIES REMEMBER THAT 99.9% OF STUDIES ARE DONE WITH THE USE OF SYNTHETIC VITAMINS. MANY OF THESE REFERENCES AND STUDIES SHOW THE ADVERSE EFFECTS OF SYNTHETIC VITAMINS INDIRECTLY BECAUSE MANY OF THE STUDIES SHOW ZERO POSITIVE RESULTS AND MANY TIMES ADVERSE RESULTS FOR YOUR HEALTH!
NATURALLY OCCURRING VITAMINS ARE THE WAY TO GO!!
DON'T RISK YOUR HEALTH TO THE UNCERTAINTY OF SYNTHETIC VITAMINS!TM
