Vitamins are a collection of compounds required by the body in small amounts.
But just how do you know if you're getting enough of a certain vitamin, and when should you look at supplements?
Those are some of the questions we posed to an expert on the topic, from Roanoke's Community Hospital.

There are instances where vitamin supplements can be extremely beneficial-- for instance, taking iron during pregnancy, and folic acid prenatally.

Still, though, our understanding of the science behind vitamins is still evolving.
One thing researchers are sure of-- many consumers might be buying products they DON'T need.

A week in the hospital is now standard.
But, researchers believe these drugs-- a new class of improved versions of heparin-- can be injected safely and effectively for treatment of a common condition called deep-vein thrombosis.

It started when a police officer pulled over a car in the Detroit suburb. Police say they had an outstanding warrant for the female passenger's arrest.
This is video taken from a camera on the police car dashboard.
The officer reportedly handcuffed the woman and put her in the back seat of his patrol car.
But somehow, she managed to get into the front seat, put the car in gear and leave the scene.
Other officers chased the cruiser reaching speeds near 100 miles an hour.
The woman lost control of the car about 10-miles later and spun out, she was then taken into custody.
Police say the woman was drunk and four months pregnant.
