Vitamins 'may shorten your life'?
« on: April 16, 2008, 09:49:13 AM »
As always thanks for the fascinating, illuminating and something-else-ing show.

Incidentally don't you find it curious that the name of The Beast (Lucifer) as used by so many Christians means "Bringer of Light" or "Illuminator"?

So taking vitamin pills ISN'T the secret to long life and health?

From the BBC web site, a report that suggests that taking vitamin supplements might actually do more harm than good?
A review of 67 studies found "no convincing evidence" that antioxidant supplements cut the risk of dying.  Scientists at Copenhagen University said vitamins A and E could interfere with the body's natural defences.

I particularly liked the following for it's simplicity of message:
The Department of Health said people should try to get the vitamins they need from their diet, and avoid taking large doses of supplements - a market which is worth over £330m in the UK.
