Bottle Count


Now that Body Beware, Anne Taylor Fleming’s Open City column about our national health obsession, is online, here’s something we’re not supposed to tell you about the story:

Fleming has 18 half-full supplement and vitamin vessels on her kitchen shelf. She admits, “I keep trying to throw them out becuase we don’t take them anymore. But my husband says, ‘No, we’ll just get more that we won’t finish.'”

And, in the spirit of full disclosure, I took exactly one vitamin C tablet this morning. Go in good health.
