(NaturalNews) The medical-industrial complex has a fetish for maligning natural health protocols, taking every opportunity it can to swipe at the effectiveness of natural vitamins and dietary supplements. But its most recent scare campaign over the supposed dangers of taking vitamins and supplements, which was based on a very poorly conducted study, shows how pitifully desperate this corrupt system has become.

In a recent release, the Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) explains, in detail, why the Iowa Women's Health Study, which was published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine and used by the mainstream media to allege that taking vitamin supplements is linked with increased mortality, is essentially manipulated, pseudo-scientific nonsense.

Among the key points in ANH's rebuttal to the study is the fact that its data had to be "massaged" in order to arrive at the results it did. In truth, the study team actually found that vitamins and supplements help to prolong life, not reduce it. But by adjusting the data to fit their preconceived goal of finding a link between vitamins and increased mortality, the research team was able to successfully arrive at (very loose) anti-vitamin results.

According to ANH, author Dr. Jaakko Mursu deliberately excluded lifestyle factors from their data equation, which ultimately skewed the results. Lifestyle factors play a hugely significant role in mortality rates, of course, but this information was conveniently omitted.

The research team also admits in the final comment portion of its study that it failed to gather data about supplements taken as part of a specific medical regimen. The team says it did not have any data "regarding nutritional status or detailed information of supplements used," which is a significant deficiency that proves the illegitimacy of the study.

And yet the mainstream media responded by lambasting vitamins and supplements, and urging people to basically stop using them for their own safety. And ANH has correctly identified the whole scenario as a "class example of scientific reductionism being used to fulfill a particular need," which in this case appears to be the "protection of Big Pharma's profit margins."
