Were all 15,000 subjects genetic clones who followed identical lifestyle habits?
If not, then I don't find the study all that convincing.

I'm not anti-vitamin; I take a mulit-liqui-gel with additional B's and D.
I believe that there ARE benefits to using some supplemental vitamins. I just don't put much faith into the above study.

Exactly.
That's why I've never cared for epidemiological studies in most instances.
