Researchers at Warwick University UK and John Hopkins Baltimore say they are almost always a waste of time. Defended on the show by Graham Keen of the HFMA and against by Chris van Tulliken presenter of Trust me I’m a doctor on BBC television.
Graham admitted he is not a scientist and that did not add much weight to the argument. this always the problem with supplement studies.
