    Seems to be the usual overabundance of caution in favor of CW. But I'd love to hear some smart, close analysis from our local experts.

    Every time I see a story like this I think of big pharma and how they would just love to have vitamin and mineral supplements regulated and prescribed. One step at a time is how you lose the ability to live your life as you see fit...freedom.
    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
    READ THE BOOK! ...as Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."

    and yes, calories DO count my little piggies

    Oh, dang. Heartbreaking. So much excess illness, and early debility and mortality will come from this. Just heartbreaking.

    +1 I think we have to research and have healthy skepticism regarding vitamin, mineral and herbal supplementation, but I firmly believe that they can be of great benefit. I also believe that many conditions can be treated/avoided with less money and side effects via supplements than by drugs and there are many with a financial incentive to make sure that this doesn't become common knowledge. I put more faith in someone like Dr. Davis who is reporting real world results of diet/supplementation and is not selling those supplements than drug companies or proxies for those companies telling me how safe/effective those drugs are.
