Supplement infographic: most users are healthy to begin with
I love this new graphic from the Council for Responsible Nutrition, the trade association for the dietary supplement industry.
My favorite: “Supplement consumers are more likely to engage in other healthy habits than non-consumers.”
This is delightfully ambiguous. Does it mean: Supplements make consumers healthier?
Or does it mean: consumers who are healthy to begin with are the ones who take supplements?
I vote for the latter. That’s why the great majority of studies of supplements and health show no effect. Study subjects are already healthy and don’t need them.
