In US news and current events today, this doctor spent $17k on black market medical gear because of the nationwide lack of supplies to fight COVID-19. Hospital workers across the country are forced to get creative with how they protect themselves while treating COVID-19 patients.

Real food vs. vitamin supplements: Which is healthier?


If you’re one of the many Americans who takes vitamin supplements, chances are you think they will improve your health and help you live longer.

But that’s not necessarily true, according to a recent study from Tufts University. It found that the best way to improve longevity is by getting nutrients in the food you eat—and that supplements might even be bad for you.

According to the study, taking supplements didn’t translate into a lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, cancer, or any other cause. But getting adequate amounts of vitamin K and magnesium from food was associated with a lower risk of death from all causes.

Getting enough vitamin A and K, copper, and zinc through diet was also associated with a lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease.

Consumer Reports health experts say if you stick with a diet made up of mostly whole foods, like fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein, you’ll get the nutrients you need.
