Vitamin and mineral supplementation is a common practice in the United States, yet little is known about the long-term health effects of regular supplement use.
To examine the relationship between reported use of supplements and mortality, we analyzed data from US adults 25 to 74 years of age who were examined in the First National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1971 to 1975), with vital status determined through 1987.
At baseline, 22.5% of the cohort reported using supplements regularly and 10.0% reported irregular use.
