Nutrient Powder and Cancer

Postby reiddragons » Thu Jun 04, 2020 3:16 pm

Hi everyone,

My little guy refuses his greens sometimes, so I have taken to, once a week, dipping a worm in his multivitamin powder then feeding it to him just to be sure he gets his multivitamin.

I've read that too many vitamin supplements can cause cancer in humans, could this be the same for beardies?

How could I tell if he was getting TOO MUCH of nutrients?

Too much supplements will turn their urate yellow - like on the ends - 2 x per week for vitamins - one feeding - dust the bugs that way you know hes getting the supplement - 5 x per week one feeding for calcium D3

Ok, so his urate is not noticeably yellow. It can get darker on the ends, but only so much as like, it gets darker and transitions into the darker colors of the non urate poop.

Any idea on the cancer concern?
