Scientists warn that artificial vitamins are very dangerous

Scientists from Denmark do not recommend to take artificial vitamins and other synthetic supplements. According to the experts, from such tablets the body receives dangerous synthetic components instead of useful compounds. These components increase the risk of vomiting, stomach ulcers and premature death, "RuNews24" reports.

The scientists have found that people who regularly took artificial vitamins A, C and E, died earlier than those who did not take such vitamins. According to the scientists, fruits and vegetables should be the main source of vitamins for humans. Their protein structure promotes the absorption of useful compounds.

By the way, earlier the scientists of the University of Colorado have found that consumption of a large amount of beta-carotene increases the risk of lung cancer by 20%. In addition an excessive intake of vitamin C increases the risk of problems with the cardiovascular system by 34%. The scientists noted that vitamins can be taken only as prescribed by a doctor.
