I don't buy into the cancer thing tbh. Why? Literally everything causes cancer...I'm serious google <anything> cause cancer? and you will find some study about it lol.
That being said, I take Adam, 10bucks is great.

Multivitamins are very important for me because I have this tendency of getting sick if I work out too much. If you want to be at the top of your health, you should allot budget for multis. I don't think they're too expensive though.

A good multi is great, but they are usually overdosing you. Now Green pills, those things almost give me a high when I take them. I feel so amazing.

exercise your freedom to not be ''scared'' by 'fear mongering'.
with so many carcinogens present in modern society to be exposed to, you would think people would try to limit the ones they can .
and yes, i agree with the poster who said some chicken can cause cancer........this is why people prefer their chicken to NOT have hormones pumped into them. DUH? thats why people use organic foods.
in any case, the moral of the story is : if you're going to use something as a supplement, why supplement with trash?
if you're going to buy coq10, get ubiquinol.
if you're going to get milk thistle, get liver juice ( 80% absorbed vs 8%).
and if you're going to get vitamins, make sure they aren't synthetic.
For me, the action IS the juice.

Again though there are so many things out there that will throw free radicals your way that you cant criticize synthetic vitamin users if your not avoiding everythg within your resonable ability.

I don't have a choice for the most part mate. I drink milk that has a shelf life of 2 years at 70 degrees. That can't be that good for you. ALL the food I eat is processed too...but there is no organic food in a chow hall, hell, some of the beef is actually horse too (horse is delish though)
My point was more of a "look, everything causes cancer, don't sweat the small ****" approach. Synthetic vitamins may cause cancer, grilling chicken may cause cancer, you can't even count the things that MAY cause cancer. Instead of worrying about your vitamins maybe being synthetic and maybe causing cancer, worry about not smoking, and not sitting in tanning booths every day. There is too much crap that might give you cancer, and really...synthetic vitamins...there is no way to even prove those cause cancer...because you can't survive on vitamins alone. You can't have a successful control group to even figure that one out lol. I dunno man, I respect your opinions, but truth is some people can't afford designer vitamins, and some people just dont care.
To support my statements:
There. All of us will have kidney cancer. This study was published in the International Journal of Cancer too. I dunno man. Cancer causing studies are bs to me.

Exactly eventually you have to reach a point of saying "enough is enough". You can move away from the highly populated areas, ditch your car, become a vegan eating only organics and artificial nothing, ditch all plastic food container/utensils, make your own soaps and clothes, Spend only limited amounts of time in the sun properly clothed to minimize exposure time, and eliminate any electricity intensive appliances to minimize electromagnetic exposure, but where do you draw the line. You pretty much have to be a vegan Amish, which i dont even think is possible, and even then are you safe? lol

Smeh... Natural. Synthetic.
IMO it doesn't really matter.
The dose makes the poison.
Cancer? Its statistics. Considering humans are continuing to live longer and longer, its really just a matter of time. DNA can only replicate so many times before cancer develops.

Listen, i COMPLETELY understand the money aspect being the end all in nutrition.
I do not buy organic ANYTHING. I'm just sayin, if you are going to spend the money on the supps, get ones that work. spending 5 bucks on dogsh*t is not a better deal than spending 20$ on something that will help you.
For the record, i use ADAM multi. I mainly was just hating on centrum. I didn't mean for this to get out of control concerning humans, the environment, and carcinogens.
For me, the action IS the juice.

Multis aren't expensive. I take Orange Triad, its like 27 for a 90 day supply. Animal Pak gets great reviews too, but a tad more expensive.
