Pet Peeve

Can someone explain to me why such a large bottle is needed for such small pills?

I know that the probably only make 1 or 2 sizes of bottles to accommodate the largest size pills but really, this is a waste of packaging.

A lot of packaging is made scandalously bulky and hard to open (like those heavy-duty plastic bubbles that have to be attacked with an axe or gardening shears) to impede theft and also to enhance visibility on the shelf... NOT good reasons from the honest customer's or from the environmental points of view, but... ;-(

Because there has to be enough room for the cotton?

Are you taking D? Any luck preventing flu? Tried a couple days of large doses last winter, still got the flu at some point.

No cotton in this bottle. Nothing but a few pills and air.

I do take D, I rarely get the flu but I'm not sure it's because of the pills.

There appears to be significant evidence of long term benefits to taking vitamin D, especially if you live in the northern part of the world and see little sun in the fall/winter. Canadian Cancer Society recommends taking it so I figure it can't hurt.
