Acid reflux drug linked to more than doubled risk of stomach cancer – study | Science | The Guardian
[instead of changing diet - you give pills ] The study concluded no firm cause and effect could be drawn, but doctors should “exercise caution when prescribing long-term PPIs … even after successful eradication of H plyori”.

Responding to the study, Stephen Evans, professor of pharmacoepidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said: “Many observational studies have found adverse effects associated with PPIs.

“The most plausible explanation for the totality of evidence on this is that those who are given PPIs, and especially those who continue on them long-term, tend to be sicker in a variety of ways than those for whom they are not prescribed.”

Is scurvy making a comeback? - BBC News
Scurvy is on the rise in England, [...] In the year up to April 2014, it was the primary diagnosis behind 16 hospital admissions and the primary or secondary cause of 94 admissions. Between 2009 and 2014, admissions related to scurvy went up by 27%. That's in line with percentage increases in hospital admissions for malnutrition and gout - a common Victorian complaint traditionally associated with too much port and an unhealthy lifestyle - over the same period. The most recent research, conducted in 2014, suggests that gout currently affects one in 40 people in the UK. [...] What does this say about the nation's diet? [...] While the increasing prevalence of gout in the UK is a concern, experts put it down to an ageing population and a growing obesity problem. // &! bbc.in/1ZP1bDL - Child Protection failed.

Vitamins and Supplements: An Evidence-Based Approach - YouTube
- correlation vs causation. vitamin/supplement takers seem to be more health conscious. making some better health decisions (supplements look good bc health conscious ppl take them). statistics and study/survey sometimes don't take that into account (fudging data), don't make that clear. disclose. especially studies funded by interest groups. - expression of cancer reduced (protective, decreased all mortality rate) w increased veg and fruit intake. - vitamins and supplements can not replace phytonutrients and fiber that come with fruit and veg intake. - differentiation between fat soluble and water soluble. - Vitamin A study discourages intake, on average harmful. - Supplementation for Sick Population: B-Complex together w Folic Acid doesn't help (reduce cancer & cardiac event, cardiovascular disease ...
