[personal profile] robynebr posting in [community profile] sceptics
Ooh... first post outta the gate and I hit enter too soon! This sounds promising. :)

I read many skeptic blogs (skepchick, science blogs, etc.) and I've seen this argument made a few times. When dissecting the spread of 'woo' health advice in the 'net, someone eventually asks 'well, do you take vitamins? Because they're not proven." Or something along the lines.

As a skeptic, what is your criteria for health supplements? Avoid all? Keep your mind open to non-government-sanctioned research? Are studies done in other countries acceptible, even if your home country doesn't sign off on a vitamin or supplement?

Also - hi! New here, obviously. I'm shying away from Livejournal these days, but am having trouble finding enough activity on dreamwidth to hold my interest. I wonder if this site is going to take off? (oops, two questions in one - is that allowed? :-P)
