More on Vitamin Study

Junkfood Science has a nice post regarding the epidemiological vitamin study I discussed recently. She did a much better job of pinning down some important concerns relative to the whole concept of these types of associative research studies and noted an interesting finding regarding vitamin use in general.

A bottom line conclusion when analyzing this study is what is not noted. If you consider that a broad "end point" here concerns benefits of vitamin and supplement intake then you will note that there aren't any.

This eloquent "evidence of nothing" conclusion succinctly sums up one underlying issue concerning supplements that paints a bigger picture than one studies finding. This perspective is helpful and also provides some added tools when examining the mountains of information out there when searching for meaningful information.
