Are supplements and herbs harmful

On average, Finns get far too little iodine, the recommendation is at least 150 mcg, in the absence of which so many suffer from the thyroid gland not working properly. A huge number of people suffer from iron deficiency, which makes one tired and the lack of it also impairs the thyroid gland.

Finns get about 250 mcg / day of folic acid, or vitamin B9, which affects brain health, although the recommendation is 300 mcg. In England, the recommendation is 800 mcg and it is added to flour to achieve the goal. England is the only country in Europe where memory disorders do not grow.

Finns get e.g. selenium and magnesium, which are important for heart health, well below the ideal value, and even less so in eastern Finland due to poor soil. On the west coast where the soil is mostly clay, intake is much higher and thus heart attacks are much rarer. Magnesium deficiency impairs mental health and selenium thyroid health.

Ready-to eat meals, fast food and junk food already make up more than 50% of Finns’ calories. Pigs, with a physiology close to that of human beings, may be given human food leftovers up to 10% of their diet to ensure that health and growth are not compromised. In poor modern diets, important fiber is also obtained at a fraction of the need.

In livestock farming, all professionals provide their animals with nutrients on the recommendation of veterinarians and scientists, because without them health and growth suffer, even though animal feed is always complete, nutritious and unheated, unlike human food.

Herbs and medicinal plants are a huge unknown health reserve, the huge health potential of which can be learned from books.

There are no cases of illnesses caused by supplements and herbs, despite warnings, but medication always strains the liver and the side effects are experienced by almost everyone.
