Vitamins: The Good and the Bad

VitaminsThese days everyone is hunting for a bargain. But when it comes to vitamins, do you really know what you’re getting?

First, cheap vitamins are usually synthetic. Synthetic vitamins are made from coal tar derivatives and are much cheaper to produce than natural vitamins which come from food and other natural sources. There are mixed feelings about whether or not synthetic vitamins are as good as natural, but my personal opinion is that I want my vitamins to come from a food source, not a fuel source which is known to be carcinogenic (cancer-causing).

Thymus GlandWhen we hear about different glands in the body it is most frequent to hear about the thyroid and the adrenal glands. But there is a seldom-talked about gland that is protecting your body from infections, cancer and other diseases which is barely given any attention. It’s your thymus, and considering its function, it deserves more attention than it gets.

Peter Gillham's in Downtown ClearwaterMost of the articles I write are health-related information to help educate you, the reader, by giving you information you can use to help improve your quality of life. So many of you have called or come into the store to thank us for what we do. Today I would like to thank each and every one of you for everything YOU do. Because of all of you Peter Gillham’s has been experiencing expansion like never before. Each of you has helped to contribute by supporting a small local business run by local people, and we in turn give back as a store by contributing to and supporting local community groups, and as individuals by our many hours of volunteer work in numerous city and private groups which help to make our city a better place to live. Together we are achieving this.
