    Pros:

    More of a variety of vitamins from A to Zinc

    Cons:

    Contains 18mg of Iron




    [​IMG]

    Pros:

    No Iron
    More Lycopene than Centrum
    Contains extra vitamin that helps prostate

    Cons:

    They are running a 12 year test with the vitamin to see if it does actuall help your prostate. Which makes us test subjects.
    Less variety of vitamins than Centrum






    Which vitamin would you use? I think Centrum is perfect except is has 18mg of Iron and everything sais excess Iron is bad for men.

    iron in men has been linked to heart disease, some say

    men dont need excess iron since your dont bleed out your penis every month

    you're fine on the iron intake unless you have hemochromatosis like me - then you're not fine on the extra iron intake

    Is that the generic Wal-Mart one? If so, that shit gave me heartburn like nothing else. My dad tried it, and it gave him heartburn, too.

    Then I switched to GNC Megaman, which has more of every vitamin (and no iron), and I've never had heartburn since.

    I've decided not to buy One-A-Day or any other medicine from Bayor HealthCare because they tested there products on human subjects during the holocast which i think is wrong.

    Wyeth Brothers FTW!
