I am concerned about how Guallar and colleagues' editorial (1) was presented. I believe that a large set of persons should take vitamins: pregnant women. As a matter of fact, any woman of childbearing age should take vitamins because we do not always know whether we will become pregnant, even if we use protection (2).
Guallar and colleagues did not address this problem. I am worried that even one woman of reproductive age may stop taking a multivitamin to the detriment of a fetus that she may be carrying.
