Especially in the winter, I use frozen veggies. I do purchase local fresh produce throughout the growing season, though.
I would like to apologize for NBC News. It seems that the organization that brought us Lowell Thomas, John Cameron Swayze, Chet Huntley and David Brinkley has lowered its standard of reporting.
NBC's supplement-bashing headline article, "Vitamins don't prevent heart disease or cancer, experts find" displays an ignorance of clinical nutrition that is difficult to ignore, and, thanks to its media prominence, can't be.

Also, 50% of people who die suddenly from heart attacks do not have high cholesterol. Clearly, handing out statins like PEZ is not the answer – unless you’re a big pharmaceutical company looking to improve your bottom line.
