"slightly higher risk of death "
I am so sick of these stupid studies moving us back and forth between doing this and not doing that!We need to stop looking at these studies they are manipulating us!

This is quite disturbing , however ; what vitamins were they fed ? Were they synthetic made ? What brands ....I'm sure the studies will never tell us this # ...just let us think all supplements are bad .

And so it starts...

news.yahoo.com...


CHICAGO (AP) — There is more evidence that taking vitamin E pills can be risky. A study that followed up on men who took high doses of the vitamin for about five years found they had a slightly increased risk of prostate cancer — even after they quit taking the pills.

Doctors say it's another sign that people should be careful about using vitamins and other supplements.

"People tend to think of vitamins as innocuous substances, almost like chicken soup — take a little and it can't hurt," said lead author Dr. Eric Klein of the Cleveland Clinic. The study shows that is not true.


Yet another study published today. My guess is that "they" will eventually a intentional poisoning, similar to the tylenol scare in the 80's, and do a massive recall further damaging multivitamin's rep. Of course that's just one possible scenario.

The study involved about 39,000 women who were between the ages of 55 and 69 when the study began and were tracked for 19 years.

During that time, about 40 per cent of them died. When the researchers looked at who took vitamins, those who chose multivitamins had a slightly higher risk of death than those who took no supplements at all. The same was found for women who regularly took iron, vitamin B6, folic acid, magnesium, zinc and copper.


I have a similar study, actually.

The National transit board recorded the activities of 1,000,000 people some years ago.

And, of those people, those who used seatbelts had a higher mortality rate.

I guess seatbelts are Killing people, eh?

Actually, ErtaiNaGia, the study about the seatbelts may actually be correct!

When seatbelts were introduced, it was believed that lives would be saved however, puritans, those who want to enforce a personal choice on you, failed to take into consideration human psycology.

Every individual has a set level of risk that they are comfortable with. Some people will jump out of a perfectly good airplane and others are afraid to j-walk at midnight on a back country road. And of course, you understand that seat belts may or may not save you from injury depending on the severity of the accident

When people drove without seatbelts, they drove in accordance with their own individual risk level. So some people drove just under the speed limit and slowed down even further in bad weather. Others, of course, loved the feel of speed.


When people started to drive with seat belts, they adjusted their driving habits because seat belts made them feel "safer" and they felt that they could increase the incidence of risky driving.

Because of this psychological quirk in people - the number of lives lost may very well have INCREASED!

But the advantage of seatbelts is that it is one more thing that the government can call a "crime" and fine you for, private insurance companies can increase your rates if you get a ticket for not wearing a seat belt. Win Win Lose - everyone profits except for the general population who lose more lives than before the advent of seat belts.
