Over the past few weeks, I’ve been spending time in London taking in the local food scene. My last trip led me to the incredible Borough Market. For those of you who don’t know, this outdoor food bazaar offers a spectacular mélange of the best food in Europe. Local farmers and artisanal producers sell their products; it’s like Manhattan’s Union Square Greenmarket on steroids. When I visit these kinds of food markets, I feel like Augustus Gloop upon his arrival at Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory—I want it all.

I love Emergen-C, the powdered vitamin supplement sold at drug stores and minimarts. When I take it, I am buying into the myth that supplements will make me healthier. The fact is that supplements are not proved to make me any healthier and are not regulated by the FDA. So why do I take them?
