Tufts recently completed a study involving more than 27,000 Americans as reported in Consumer Reports. It is part of a growing body of research evidencing that eating healthy food is probably better for you than popping supplements.
The Tufts researchers found that taking supplements didn’t lower the risk of death during the study follow-up period while those individuals that were consuming the recommended amount of key nutrients from healthy foods actually faced a lower risk of death in the same time frame.
Lead researcher Fang Fang Zhang, MD, PhD noted “these results are consistent with current dietary recommendations.”
