Vitamin and mineral supplements have been in the news a lot lately.  There’s conflicting information out there:  Are supplements good for you?  Are they necessary?  Should everyone be taking them

Before posting to this week’s discussion, read the following two articles that address the topic of micronutrient supplementation:

1.   Annals of Internal Medicine editorial (Links to an external site.) (from Dec. 17, 2013)

(http://annals.org/aim/article/1789253/enough-enough-stop-wasting-money-vitamin-mineral-supplements)

2.  Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics advice (Links to an external site.)

http://www.eatright.org/resource/food/vitamins-and-supplements/dietary-supplements/vitamins-minerals-and-supplements

Now, imagine that your best friend just sent you an e-mail that reads something like:

“Hey!  I hear you’re taking Nutrition this quarter.  I’m worried about my diet and I think maybe I should start taking a multivitamin.  What do you think?”

Use the information in the articles above, plus anything else you’re learning in this course, to write the e-mail you’d send in response.  (Please use professional language and correct grammar.)

Read through the rubric for this assignment, including the descriptions of each criterion, to make sure you’re including everything.  I expect your response to be approximately half a page to a page.
