Centrum Silver

Consumer Health Advocacy: Product Analysis

Centrum is produced by Wyeth which is now owned by Pfizer. These corporations profit handsomely from human disease and have no reason to want to create a vitamin which interferes with their disease-dependent monopoly. A quick perusal of the ingredients in this product reveal it contains synthetic vitamins and inorganic minerals which may be doing harm to the human body.
