Some Animals More Equal Than Others, Poor Things
Stunning finding reported in Reader's Digest:
    A February report in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that taking antioxidant vitamins actually increased a person’s risk of dying by up to 16 percent.

    . . . .

    But in 47 randomized trials involving almost 181,000 adults, researchers found that taking vitamins A, beta carotene and E, alone or in combination, actually increased a person's risk of dying by up to 16 percent.
Personally, I find my odds daunting, but at least they're not 116% chance of dying.

To say Noggle, one first must be able to say the "Nah."
