w/f safe link to recent article citing link between excessive vitamins and prostate cancer. Are there any studies refuting it? Is this typical medical FUD?

It seems there is mounting evidence that eating refined foods and megadosing with select vitamins is not a proper choice for good health. I still like the "Eat The Rainbow" idea of trying to eat a fruit or vegetable thats red, orange, yellow, green, and blue/purple daily. I just have trouble finding blues heh.

I wouldn't be suprised with those results. Although people link almost everything to some form of cancer these days. There is research out there showing vitmains in high doses cause negative effects, or no effects at all, especially when compaired to natures dosages. I posted some studies on this thread a while back.. http://www.crossfit.com/cgi-bin/disc...=23&page=33087
