Default Another fear-mongering article on supplementation....

http://health.msn.com/womens-health/...1010&GT1=31036

What a load of horse****....

True, water has an LD-50.... so does O2....

It is true that STUPID supplementation is of course dangerous.
There are pillmakers who sell 250 mg tablets of B6, which is positively
toxic.
5-hour energy contains 40 mg of B6, which is also ultra un-smart (assuming
my astigmatic eyes read the label right).
Hmmm.... lemme check.... Yup.... along with 833 mcg of B-12, which is
semi-absurd.

Hard to know where to even begin on this kind of "research", reporting. I
think the Enquirer and Star Mag have better fact-checking/peer-review than
these jerkoff journal articles.

The one thing that DOES make sense is the iron connection, which is
clinically/histologically well-observed.
More and more multi's are offering the option of zero iron, such as Costco's
Mature Multi, not a bad formula. Their Performance Multi has 9 mg of iron,
a bit less than most others.
Iron is thought by many to be MUCH more the culprit in CAD than effing
cholesterol.

It is virtually impossible to get "optimal nutrition" from a """""sensible
diet""""".

Magnesium correlated with effing mortality???? Are you effing kidding
me?????????????
Magnesium is as close to a miracle nutrient as you can get, and it is
unlikely that anyone short of herbivores are getting even the RDA (about 400
mg), which is proly already woefully low -- proly 800 mg is a better
"minimum".

Magnesium will stop kidney stones, arrest acute asthma attacks, lower
blood pressure, make yer dick grow longer..... well, at least I think it
did.... LOL

Magnesium (or lack thereof) also seems to be increasingly implicated in the
osteoporotic process.
