LivingFuel HealthAlert: Multivitamin Junk Science

Junk Science is a modern term for a poorly performed study that reaches sweeping, and possibly erroneous, conclusions, despite weaknesses in methods for collecting and analyzing the data (definition from  Unfortunately, widely-read scientific journals and the news media are not immune from junk science.  As a leading health researcher and author of three books on diet, nutrition, and performance,
I’ve learned that healthy skepticism is important when analyzing medical studies and evaluating the subsequent reporting in the news.

For example, the American Medical Association’s prestigious Archives of Internal Medicine (October 2011)
published a study titled Dietary Supplements and Mortality Rate on Older Women: The Iowa Women’s Health Study.  
This widely-reported study’s findings link multivitamin use to death in older women, and also question the very use
of dietary supplements as a whole.  What can you learn from this study?  Should you make any changes to your
family’s approach to good health?

Today on LivingFuelTV, we take a close look and shine the light of truth.

LivingFuel HealthAlert: New Study – Vitamin Combo May Delay Aging

A cocktail of vitamins, minerals and herbals may delay the major aspects of the aging process and extend lifespan by 10 per cent, according to a new study from Canada.

Mice fed a supplement containing 30 dietary ingredients did not experience a 50 per cent loss in daily movement like other non-supplemented animals, according to findings published in the current issue of Experimental Biology and Medicine.

Researchers say the benefits were linked to increases in the activity of mitochondria, the power plants of the cells, as well as by reducing levels of free radicals produced by the mitochondria.

Lead researcher David Rollo of McMaster University said these findings could help people live better longer.

“This study obtained a truly remarkable extension of physical function in old mice, far greater than the respectable extension of longevity that we previously documented. This holds great promise for extending the quality of life of ‘health span’ of humans,” Rollo added.
