Do Supplements Lower Healthcare Costs? The NIH is Considering It...

With a greater number of nurses and doctors taking supplements and recommending them to their patients, it's no surprise to learn the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) Office of Dietary Supplements is among four federal agencies sponsoring an Economic Analysis of Nutritional Interventions workshop later this month in Bethesda, Md.

Perhaps, the NIH finally paid some attention to a 2007 report by The Lewin Group (commissioned by the Dietary Supplement Education Alliance) that found the use of selected dietary supplements could "improve the health of key populations and save the nation more than $24 BILLION in healthcare costs."

The only surprise to us: Why did it take so long for experts to figure this elegantly simple solution out?
