Do Multivitamins Really Work?

It seems counterintuitive that multivitamins, which are advertised help you can in fact not work and can cause health problems. This is the case, and many people lack the knowledge of this information and continue to take them daily. Studies conducted with people have shown that the multi’s do not make you healthier and they cannot protect you against diseases. Another study even found that you obtain the same number of vitamins from just eating food and not taking a supplement. When taking a daily multivitamin, you can also put yourself at risk for taking too much of a vitamin or mineral. Some companies have even made their multivitamins with over the recommended number of vitamins and minerals which will cause health problems if abused. Multivitamins may be advertised to help you but in reality, you are just hurting yourself.

Do Toms Shoes Really Help People?

It seems counterintuitive that donating clothing can cause problems, but in the big picture of things it can do more harm than good. Toms and other brands like them sell you their products in the sense of if you buy it, in return they will do something notable such as donating or planting a tree. Being on the outside of the situation and only assuming the needs of the people affected causes more problems, than going there and seeing exactly what they need and working to provide that resource. Toms believes that providing children with shoes in impoverished areas will enable them to attend school and to not get kicked out for being barefoot. Well, when they distribute the shoes, it’s of course in the school and the shoes are given to children who already own shoes. This will only create a hoard of shoes and something similar to this occurred in Indonesia with donors bringing in a surplus of food, but within miles away there were thriving rice farms. Toms’ shoes and other companies with the same business motto do not in fact help people and can cause problems with surpluses of supplies.

Mormon Baptism Targets Anne Frank — Again

It seems counterintuitive that baptizing someone who is already dead and against their wishes is even a thing. The Mormon church has conducted a form of proxy baptism on the holocaust survivor Anne Frank. How could one be okay with putting someone’s name under their religion and opposing what the family’s wishes. Not only has this occurred with Anne Frank, but with Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Weisel, another famous holocaust survivor. The Jewish church is condemning the Mormons for their actions and is making them end these rituals. Even though the push to stop these rituals is happening, the change is slow and the problem. is still occurring.
