Dietary supplements don't prevent chronic disease
As the U.S. nutritional and dietary supplements market remains robust — an estimated $41.1 billion in sales in 2016 — the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is cautioning against the routine and indiscriminate use of these dietary add-ons. In an updated position paper, published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the academy states that while single- and multiple-vitamin and mineral supplements may benefit the many Americans whose diets are lacking in micronutrients, there is no scientific evidence to warrant their regular use for preventing chronic disease in healthy individuals.
