If there _were_ such a thing as practical life extension, many of
us would no doubt do that. But while there have been many studies
showing some correlations between diets containing certain nutrients
and certain health benefits, there has not been a single study I'm
aware of to show that popping vitamin pills has any positive health
benefit at all.
