Multivitamin researchers say
"case is closed" after studies find no health
benefits

“Enough” with the multivitamins already. That’s the message from doctors behind three new studies and an editorial that tackled an oft-debated question in medicine: Do daily multivitamins make you healthier? After reviewing the available evidence and conducting new trials, the authors have come to a conclusion of “no.” “We believe that the case is closed -- supplementing the diet of well-nourished adults with (most) mineral or vitamin supplements has no clear benefit and might even be harmful,” concluded the authors of the editorial summarizing the new research papers, published Dec. 16 in the Annals of Internal Medicine. “These vitamins should not be used

Multi vitamins more or less take a pot shot at what your body may be short on.If you don´t need any of what´s in them they become expensive urine.Your body is very resourceful when it comes to covering shortages of anything unless your a British sailor short on limes.

Mainstream medicine is no different than the MSM to me and I believe very little coming from either. The FDA has been wanting to get their greasy fingers around supplements for years.Who knows if this is a prelude to that. People having no insurance will look for self healing stuff and we can´t have that.

According to Dr. Michael Savage(an expert in this field) this was not a well done study and should not be taken seriously.

I was sick for years. After much research, doctors discovered I was not absorbing nutrients from my foods. It was also discovered that the same thing was happening to my brothers and sisters. So I began studying and researching nutrition myself. I began taking supplements and within a month or so, I actually began to feel better physically. My bones were so bad that I had trouble walking till I began taking calcium/magnesium once in a while with calcium rich foods. It may not help those who are healthy, but it sure helped me. Also, after much study, my recommendation for anyone is...Temperance in everything. Sometimes TOO MUCH of a good thing is bad for you. So just take what you need. Never overdo.

Here they go again - mainstream medical taking pot shots at the vitamin and supplement industry - follow the money - we are going to need to take care of ourselves in short order - our food does not supply us with trace elements and sufficient vitamins and minerals. Soils are depleted, seeds are genetically modified, fresh produce has in many cases been on the road for several days - fresh they say?

I´ve been waiting for this shoe to drop, afraid that it would. I, much like #4, had problems that I believe were largely eliminated due to a combination of vitamins and supplements. Years ago, McPain was part of an effort to make these supplements only available through prescription. Maybe I´m being overly cynical, but I think I know where this is heading.

We´ve been taking the Mega VitaMin from Vitamin World for 15 years. Is it a coincidence that in our later 50´s, we have less than one cold per year, tons of energy, and literally no health issues? Maybe. We try to eat right, get moving, etc. but we believe the vitamins have been a key factor in keeping us well.

It is disturbing to hear people claiming to be scientists and speaking the language of science making ex cathedra proclamations such as "the case is closed." This reminds one of Al Gore´s "settled science" dogma. We seem to have raised a generation of people who lack a basic grasp of the principles of science and for whom science, or what they imagine to be science, is really a form of revealed religion with experts serving as apostles to proclaim the good(or bad) news of the latest "findings."

Roma verba causa finita is not a scientific perspective. This is an elementary misunderstanding. Science is never "settled." The very notion is an oxymoron. And of course absence of proof is not proof of absence.

More humility and less advocacy and publicity would become those aspiring to toil in the vineyards of authentic science. It seems that today everyone must become a zealot of some sort - even those whose profession is supposed to insulate them from fanaticism.

I have had weight loss surgery and maintained over a 100 pound loss - I take multiple vitamins every day because of the malabsorption properties of the surgery - I will continue to take these every day as long as they are available. I, too, have only had maybe 2 colds, at the most, over the last 6 years and I think the vitamins are the reason I have been so healthy.

"It’s a shame for consumers that the authors refuse to recognize the real-life need for vitamin and mineral supplementation, living in a fairy-tale world that makes the inaccurate assumption that we’re all eating healthy diets and getting everything we need from food alone."

[BTW:CBS News really ought to consider hiring an editor. I found both grammar and punctuation errors.]

They aren´t cure alls. I take a multivitamin. I also exercise daily and eat very healthy. $15/500 at Costco and Consumerlab.com says they´re legit. Most doctors know nothing about nutrition. It isn´t a course in most medical schools.

Police are investigating a vicious attack on a Manhattan chef who was walking alone on Tuesday night when he was allegedly assaulted by a group of six to eight men, all between the ages of 16 and 21. ‘I´m not well, a lot of swelling and overall pain,’ said victim Diego Moya. ‘Should be four weeks until I lose the wires and can eat normally, which is devastating being a chef. Means I can´t work.’

White House glitches go
beyond Obamacare
The Financial Times, by Edward Luce    Original Article

Six months ago, Max Baucus, the veteran Democratic senator, said that “Obamacare” – the Affordable Care Act – was a looming “train wreck”. Senior players had privately issued the same warnings in early 2012. The White House also brushed them off. “I tried to tell people at all levels there would be huge problems and they either didn’t listen or got irritated,” says a close ally of President Barack Obama, who works with large healthcare companies. “The White House was programmed to screen out bad news.”

Obamacare launch spawns 700+ cyber-squatters
capitalizing on Healthcare.gov, state exchanges
Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke    Original Article
Posted By: Daisymae- 10/24/2013 12:30:35 AM     Post Reply
More than 700 websites have been created with names playing off of Obamacare or Healthcare.gov, making it likely that some Americans will mistakenly hand over private information to unknown third-parties. For instance, there is a website — www.obama-care.us — that brands itself as part of the "Obamacare enrollment team," directs people to an "Obamacare enrollment form" and asks users for their name, address, Social Security number and other contact information. According to a counter at the bottom of the page, more than 3,000 people have visited obama-care.us.

Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) had what some colleagues called "a heated exchange" and what she described as "a conversation" with President Obama during a White House meeting Wednesday afternoon regarding the District´s budget constraints as a result of the partial government shutdown. Norton attended the meeting in the White House East Room with nearly 200 House Democrats and was one of a handful given the opportunity to ask the president a question. When she was called upon, Norton pressed Obama to support a House-passed bill that would permit the District to use its locally raised tax funds to maintain operations

Another solid month of hiring in June could signal the start of a stronger second half of the year for the U.S. economy. Economists predict that the government will report Friday that employers added 165,000 jobs last month, roughly in line with May´s increase. The unemployment rate is expected to stay at a still-high 7.6 percent. The Labor Department will release the employment report at 8:30 a.m. EDT Friday. The job market and the economy have proved surprisingly resilient this year. Hiring and consumer confidence have remained steady despite higher taxes and federal spending cuts.

Tel Aviv, Israel - Israel’s military fumed Monday over the discovery that the U.S. government had revealed details of a top-secret Israeli military installation in published bid requests. The Obama administration had promised to build Israel a state-of-the-art facility to house a new ballistic-missile defense system, the Arrow 3. As with all Defense Department projects, detailed specifications were made public so that contractors could bid on the $25 million project. The specifications included more than 1,000 pages of details on the facility, ranging from the heating and cooling systems to

Trenton - Gov. Chris Christie is cashing in donations from top Democratic fundraisers and other traditionally liberal donors across the country, even nabbing the support of a handful of rainmakers aligned with President Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a Star-Ledger review of state and federal records shows. The checks are flying into the Republican governor’s war chest from all sorts of unlikely places — the hedge fund run by liberal billionaire George Soros, for example, and the politically progressive halls of the University of California, Berkeley.

Complaints About Turkey Attacks
On The Rise In Brookline
WBZ-TV [Boston, MA], by Bobby Sisk    Original Article

Neighbors are on the offensive in Brookline after what some residents are describing as aggressive turkeys. “They were attacking the vehicle,” Karen Halvorson said outside her home in the Aspinwall Hill neighborhood. After getting in her truck, a neighbor came and ran the birds off but it didn’t stop there. “Then, the turkeys came and started attacking my front door,” she said. A second run-in came a few weeks ago as she walked nearby. “I looked back and three of them charged me,” she explained. She moved to the center of the street to avoid the animals, but it wasn’t enough.

United States Secret Service agents were taken aback on seeing large water monitors wandering the grounds of Government House during security inspections yesterday ahead of US President Barack Obama´s visit. They mistook them for the ferocious, carnivorous komodo dragons found in parts of Indonesia, a Government House source said. Thai officials calmed their nerves, explaining to them the creatures are relatively harmless. Monitor lizards are commonly found at Government House as the compound is surrounded by canals.US embassy officials accompanying the team told the agents the reptiles could also be found at the US embassy office on Witthayu Road.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov.

She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
