Antioxidants and Prevention

Bob W’s Nutrition & the Immune System Weblog points to interesting data about the value of taking vitamin supplements.

This is important reason for caution. It also raises the question of why the US media jumped so readily on the antioxidant bandwagon. It’s getting to the point where one never knows who to trust anymore for medical information. I was a proponent for the food pyramid for a long time and quite frankly I required a lot of convincing to see that the all-grain and pasta diet wasn’t as good as it was cracked up to be. Reading people like Dr. Mercola offers some critical approach to the medical literature. But at some point anyone concerned about nutrition has to follow one’s instincts: consume in moderation, avoid artificial ingredients/supplements and eat lots of fruits and vegetables.
