  1. How many wrong ideas is giving this doctor in this video. I usually don’t make any negative comments on videos but can’t avoid to make a comment on this one. There are lots of studies and researches that show the importance of taking supplements. Other thing is to look for those ones that have bioavailability, This video is old but still is top in the google searches… To get well informed and educated in this matter I Suggest the movie THE VITAMIN MOVIE!

  2. The kid only eats meat and bread = he’s fine. Who is this moron?!

  3. This guy sounds like he’s on NZT

  4. Ok this Dr. is misinformed ,CBC news doimg disservice for all … go to and see for yourself ! Thumbs down !

  5. 2:21 That’s not true ! Bread with vitamins ? This must be a joke!

  6. I take supplements every day through a Ph.D. CCN. All whole foods is what they are made of. No side effects whatsoever. No more diabetes!

  7. So how much money is Big Pharma making? $50 billion + .

  8. This man is Big Pharma. Never mentions that EVERY one of his drugs heal NOTHING and ALL have SIDE effects.

  9. Old news! Did you forget to clean house and remove it? 2015 has come and gone.

  10. again, the ‘claim’ that pharma testing proves safe or effectiveness is FALSE! only a 2% improvement is required for an ‘efficacy’ claim. Yet, EVERY pharmaceutical has a laundry list of nasty side effects. This Dr did not do his homework”? Suggest: ask does this doctor get pharma $, sponsorships?

    1. Agree 100%All Prescription Drugs have Side-effects.Some patients are prescribed dangerously high doses of drugs which shorten their lives. When a patient complains of a side effect, they are often prescribed another drug for the symptoms

    2. I agree on this.

  11. Diet is garbage…don’t need any additional nutrients? Kid is gonna have health issues if he doesn’t get healthy nutrients in his diet and not all of these garbage fortified nutrients.

  12. First, malnutrition causes disease. Second, all nutritional foods will NOT have long shelf life in supermarket.

    1. S.A.D. causes disease. Look at Americans! Stay off ALL processed foods and carbs.

  13. You can apply this to peoples bullshit beliefs in pork regulating deities as well.
