From Evidence-Based Living
Yesterday, Yahoo!Health had posted a very interesting article regarding the dangers of vitamins and supplements.

If you haven't got enough time, here's a screenshot of the recommended daily intake of certain nutrients and minerals taken from the article. Take note of the usual foods that you eat, identify their composition, and refer to this chart to get an idea of what you really need.
