Vitamins: A Fairytale of Deficiency

30' (GER)
In the field of nutrition, vitamins pose the greatest challenge as there is always a striking gap between research results and the behaviour of the population.

For years, vitamin products have been a billion-dollar business; a direct result of this being the frequently myths about the hazards of vitamin deficiency. But which vitamins do we really need? Can’t the necessary vitamins be obtained from a healthy diet? Meanwhile, an increasing number of food manufacturers are using so-called functional foods with vitamin enriched foods. But scientists warn that this can lead to overdosing, which would then result in an increase in the mortality rate. A NZZ format programme about the shady business of vitamin supplements.
