I am currently not taking any supplement except I do take tumeric

 I am considering adding bosmeric and maybe vitamin D. My Dr hasn't said one way or another that I should or should not take anything except to avoid multi vitamins.

Any thoughts???

    Not sure

    Both my primary Dr and Urologist said I didn't really need them that I should be able to get all the vitamins and minerals I need form my diet of I am eating correctly.

    With the exception of maybe  vitamin D

    I take turmeric and

    I take turmeric and glucosamine, as well as a multi-vitamin.  I run a lot, so the glucosamine helps my joints.

    Hi Cin

    I'm pretty much on the same page as you. The only vitamins I sometimes take are D and K2.  But I eat liver sometimes and eggs often. They are like vitamin pills on a plate.

    I don't fully trust the claims of people who sell supplements. Nutrition advice generally seems to backflip just a little too often.

    Brock, search for 'multivitamins bad' and read some of the articles. Opinions vary widely on this stuff.

    Eat well

    Vitamins and supplements are not medicine.

    All people will benefit from a healthy diet, and if there are identified deficiencies supplements may be able to help.  I doubt that any of these will actaully defeat cancer.
