What you are hearing in the news is only if you are ignorant and uneducated.
Of course if you have never used vitamin supplements before and never done any research at all you could wind up dead taking the wrong vitamins (especially if you are taking medicines prescribed by your doctor and don't tell him or her what supplements you are taking).
However, if you want to live to be 100 instead of 45 or 50 or less, educating yourself about vitamins and supplements is a life or death matter for you.
For example, this is something many people don't know: If you are over 50 and getting early Alzheimers or senile dementia the first thing to do is to go to Trader Joes and buy sublingual B-12 vitamins because it means your stomach can no longer process B vitamins and your brain absolutely cannot work right without B-12. So, if you or a relative is getting dementia try sublingual B-12 or B-12 shots from a doctor or anyone who can give them to you.
Note: Sub lingual simply means you put it under your tongue and through cell salts it goes directly into the blood from under the tongue. You never swallow it because it goes through your saliva glands directly into your blood stream.
This is just one of literally hundreds of things that can keep you alive past 35 or 45 or 50 if you know your stuff about supplements.
And people who say otherwise are making money off you dying quicker by selling you things that will reduce your quality of life and cause you to die sooner than you should.
And this is the TRUTH by God's Grace.
Exactly one week out from the Iowa caucuses, the Republican establishment is starting to believe — and accept — that Donald Trump could very well be their nominee.
Some members of the tea party wing of the party appear to be coming to terms with that as well. But, if the tweets that follow are any indication, they're not going to be happy about it.
The subject was, of course, GOP front-runner Trump. The topic: Asking Trump policy questions. The point: Trump may well be the party's most likely nominee, but many of his views are anathema to the GOP.
And it got personal. Sasse even appeared to bring up Trump's well-documented affair with actress Marla Maples and his past comments about being with married women.
Trump has also said: "I have too much respect for women in general, but if I did [write about my love life], the world would take serious notice. Beautiful, famous, successful, married — I've had them all, secretly, the world's biggest names..."
But he has also downplayed such rumors: "If I’d had affairs with half the starlets and female athletes the newspapers linked me with, I’d have no time to breathe." (Trump said in December that his personal life is indeed fair game on the campaign trail.)
Sasse is an anti-establishment, first-time officeholder who was elected in 2014 with the support of tea party leaders like Trump's rival, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), and Trump's newest friend on the campaign trail, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
But Sasse has made clear he's no friend of Trump's. Shortly after Trump suggested banning Muslim immigrants temporarily from the country, Sasse took to the Senate floor and, without using Trump's name, lamented the rise of "demagoguing leaders" on the campaign trail and "a megalomaniac strongman ... screaming about travel bans and deportation."
Sasse is such a Trump critic, his invitation Friday to speak at a New Hampshire presidential town hall (former vice president Dick Cheney was stuck in the snow) was considered worth a write-up in Politico.
After speaking in New Hampshire, Sasse logged into his personal Twitter account and tried to channel the spirit of backhanded compliments that Trump does so well. In his first few tweets, Sasse congratulated Trump on his campaign:
