Danish Study Says Vitamins Can Kill

I'm sure you've seen the report. Vitamin C doesn't contribute to longevity, Selenium may be good for your health but "more study is needed," and Beta Carotene, Vit A and Vit E supplements can actually cause you to go belly up.

Of course, critics point out that the study may be flawed. most of the people studied were terminally ill before they started taking vitamins, and the vitamins studied were synthetic and not "natural" and not the vitamins found in fruits and veggies. So, basically the study was crap.

But, you never know. I'm expecting a new study out any day now showing that air, water, sleep, laughter, and the loyalty of a pet can all cause early death. The study will also cause us to doubt the wisdom of physical activity, flossing, and sunscreen.

I'm very annoyed (oops, that is probably caused by B-Complex and/or potassium).
Can you stand it?
