WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Registered dietitian Cathy Moore of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County appeared on 7 News at Noon on Friday to talk about the difference between nutrients and whole foods.

She said a lot of research is coming out to show that vitamins by the handful is not helpful. At the same time we are learning that there are amazing synergies that happen with food that we don’t begin to completely understand.

She said while vitamins and supplements have an important place, there’s a need to be eating a “whole food” diet.

Watch her interview above.
