    All Things In Moderation

    Heavy multivitamin users were almost twice as likely to get fatal prostate cancer as men who never took the pills, concludes the study in Wednesday's Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

    Here's the twist: Overall, the researchers found no link between multivitamin use and early-stage prostate cancer.

    The researchers speculate that perhaps high-dose vitamins had little effect until a tumor appeared, and then could spur its growth.

    More wonderful news from Yahoo, but don't shoot the messenger.
    Someone once told me that his doctor told him that if he lived long enough, he'd get prostate cancer.  He did.
    Now, too many vitamins might help small cancers beat you?
    That's it.  It's steak tonight.

    15,000 (5% in a study of 300,000) were heavy vitamin users. Odd, as noone needs more than 100% of anything per day. High-dose vitamins are what to watch out for. A pharmacist once told me that a multi-vitamin of normal dosage every other day is enough.
