Russians Think They are Being Killed Off . . . by Vitamins!

ITAR-TASS reports that Russians think a major cause of their declining population is . . . the use of vitamins! No wonder Russia is in such trouble!

At least five million women in Russia suffer from manic-depressive disorders that need correction, Professor Yuri Vasyuk told on Wednesday a news conference at Itar-Tass on problems of women’s health. {LR: Given the fact that one Russian woman is murdered by her husband every forty minutes, this may well be a massive understatement.}

“Depression is widespread among women for the reason that they suffer to some or other degree from cardiovascular diseases – ischemia and arterial hypertension, which have the common genetic origin,” he said.

Vasyuk said treatment of hypertension in women in Russia became much less effective in the past five years. He believes this is connected with the fact that a large number of various biologically active supplements, which at best can serve as vitamins, found their ways into the pharmacy market. He said a sum of 117 million dollars is spent on advertising of biologically active supplements annually in Russia, which is much larger than the sum spent on basic cardiovascular medicines.

Maria Glezer, the chief of the department of preventive and emergency cardiological service at the Sechenov Medical Academy in Moscow, warned against indiscriminate use of vitamins. She said the latest research showed that excessive use of vitamin B6 and folic acid leads to the increase of mortality in women. Glezer stressed that cardiovascular diseases are among the main cause of mortality among Russian women.

UGLY: That's because you have only my best interests at heart, right? I suggest you at least explain what you are commenting. And by the way, I'm not commenting I'm just reporting.

Words from article: Maria Glezer, the chief of the department of preventive and emergency cardiological service at the Sechenov Medical Academy in Moscow, warned against indiscriminate use of vitamins. She said the latest research showed that excessive use of vitamin B6 and folic acid leads to the increase of mortality in women.

Do you have proof reported research is incorrect? Do you have proof 'indiscriminate' or 'excessive use of vitamins' is harmless? Do you have proof some abstract 'Russians' regard this use as MAJOR cause of decline of their population?

You are stupid, girl. And stupid people should not hate, then their stupidity is not so visible.

UGLY: The article states: "Vasyuk said treatment of hypertension in women in Russia became much less effective in the past five years. He believes this is connected with the fact that a large number of various biologically active supplements, which at best can serve as vitamins, found their ways into the pharmacy market." This "expert" believes that Russians spending money on vitamins prevents them from spending money on cardiovascular disease. And the "expert" discusses this topic instead of others which actually matter like smoking, poor diet, etc.

You're a hillbilly making a fool of yourself.

Exactly. Because 'money' and 'endless' are different words, if you not knew it. So-called 'biologically active supplements' with their uselessness and aggressive advertising are sucking money which could be spent on really needed pharmaceuticals. Moreover, with collapse of SU and followed westernization people were denied even of Soviet-quality medical aid (with obligatory prophylactic medical examinations) and they weren't developed yet culture of individual health-care for themselves. You know, small inevitable price for great reforms (applauded by West, of course). So they were fooled.

As you can see, this topic actually matters.

instead of others which actually matter like smoking, poor diet, etc.

You were on this press-conference and heard he didn't discuss these topics? No? Then don't make a fool of yourself. Errrr... I mean don't make bigger fool of yourself than you already are.
