Can cause nausea and severe mood swings in women. A recent study found that women who didn’t get enough fat were unhappy, and as a result were suffering at work and in relationships.

5. Taking Vitamin D supplements
Can prevent bone fractures in older women, when taken in large quantities, scientists have shown.
But the government also recently put out a recommendation saying they don’t recommend taking Vitamin D supplements. The supplements can possibly cause kidney stones, and the government says there isn’t substantial proof of its benefits.
6. Taking Calcium supplements
Can cause kidney stones and heart attacks, says government research.
But other scientists disagree and think it will make you live longer. They say the research was flawed and misinterpreted and that you should actually take tons of calcium supplements.
