OSU study focuses on zinc deficiency causes

Vitamin deficiency and seniors. Yet the medical 'care' industry has no problem drugging seniors up because geriatric medicine is catastrophic failure in America. Vitamins and fitness are too simple a solution for these so called docTORS.
Bombard your seniors with information like this and tell them to aggressively ask their doctor WHY they haven't recommended vitamins and/or a fitness program.
Another problem is that many so called doctors say just take a multivitamin. But you don't always absorb vitamins in multivitamin form. Sometimes it does pay to take individual vitamins at different times of the day in combination with others. I know seniors who take a calcium supplement yet for decades you take calcium with magnesium and/or vitamin d for better absorbtion.
Just another conformation to what the fitness community has been saying for DECADES.
