Man am i glad i took all those vitamins

According to a new study on vitamins A, C, E, selenium, and beta-carotene supplements, shows no statistical evidence that any of them either help prevent disease in healthy people, or help sick people get healthy. In fact vitamins A, E, and beta-carotene are linked to higher mortality rates. I should point out that this study was about taking supplements, not about ingesting vitamins in their natural food form.

The point remains that once again the industry of healthy eating has been proven to be bogus. As far as i know every major study about healthy eating has proven time and again that everything is bogus. I learned in health class that you need to eat fiber so you can poop a lot to prevent rectal cancer. But when a clincal study was done to test anecdotal evidence on that fact, the study showed no correlation between fiber intake and colon cancer. That study was like 15 years ago, so why are kids still learning the opposite in schools? When they did clinical studies on schools by decrease the amount of fat in kids diets, they found no health benefits. There was something recent about women and fat intake, but i forget exactly. Of course there was also the study that showed that the life expectancy of overweight people is higher than that of normal weight people. Here's a question why would you define normal weight as a weight that is more likely to lead to early death? Cause these people have no idea what they are talking about, and yet they still feel authorized, and even compelled to try and tell me what i should and shouldn't eat.

That was not enjoyable at all. In fact it doesn't even exist. I don't know how you think non-existence is enjoyable. You must be a Buddhist.
