Around half of all Americans reportedly take a multivitamin or other supplement every day with the goal of maintaining or improving their health. But new research shows that multivitamins don’t really help – unless you have an underlying deficiency -- and may even do more harm than good.
Recent research is questioning the value of multivitamins and individual supplements in lowering the risk of chronic conditions like heart disease and cancer. Doctors are starting to advise patients to stop wasting money on vitamins -- and improve their diets instead.

· Vitamin E and beta carotene do not protect against heart disease and cancer.
· Calcium does not prevent fractures.
· Multivitamins are linked to a higher risk of death in older women.
