Using your favorite search engine, find a vitamin and mineral supplement and evaluate it. In your initial forum post, discuss the following: What is the cost of these supplements? How do the amounts of vitamins and minerals in the product compare with the DRIs, AI, and UL? Are the levels of nutrients safe? What compounds are included that are not essential nutrients? What disclaimers or warnings are made about the product? Does the manufacturer provide scientific evidence to back up their claim? How likely is the supplement to improve a persons health?
Your initial post must be at least 250 words and posted by Wednesday 11:55 pm EST. You need to state your thesis and support it with evidence and at least one outside, reputable reference. Your textbook is not an outside reference. Remember, there is no right or wrong.
