In a recent article in National Standards, Joe found it newsworthy that one in three Americans add nutritional supplements to regimens for medical conditions, possibly in addition to prescription medication. The authors concluded that dietary supplement use was highest among patients with medical conditions like osteoporosis, arthritis, cancer, liver conditions, heart conditions and diabetes while prescription medication use was highest among patients within many of the same categories. Joe feels that it does not have to be either/or when it comes to supplementation, it can sometimes be both.
