So in effect, WW is ASSUMING that people are getting enough Magnesium in their diets IF indeed they at least recommend a multi to their clients. But does anyone know for SURE how much they are getting? No. Considering that low Magnesium is LINKED TO HEART ATTACKS, isn't it wise to know for sure? Yes!

In my opinion, this is a major flaw in WW.
OK - I just had to go look at my MV. Mine has magnesium! Yipppee & Yea!!!

People really don't know what they are putting in their bodies unless they log in their food, like on FitDay, right? Is that the crux of what you're saying?
