Less is More
No less than three articles in todays New York Times science section about the growing conclusion that more stuff is not better stuff. In the prevention section, new study suggesting an annual physical exam doesn’t really do anything to prevent disease, and in fact can increase diagnoses. Second article questions the use of vitamin D for cardiovascular disease. The third is a feature suggesting you don’t need to take all those multivitamins you love so much.
As anyone who reads this blog knows, my bias will always be in favor of less rather than more. The goal of this site is to sort out the good stuff from the other stuff.
