is a much debated issue. Is there any real difference between the minimal and the optimal? There are the public standards
, and then there are other perspectives
. Given the potential impact on public health as new RDIs are adopted, what do you think we should take?

How do you get teens to crave milk? Load it with caffeine.
"We're giving teens the caffeine they want but also vitamins, calcium and protein" ...and also a lot more calories.

Why take vitamins, when you can wear them
? A Japanese company says people will soon be able to get their daily dose of Vitamin C simply by wearing a T-shirt. A T-shirt made out of fibre - called V-up - would have the equivalent vitamin content of two lemons and remain effective after 30 washes.

thinks all natural deaths are caused by vitamin or mineral deficiencies. And is a great read. Imagine Ross Perot saying this:
Well, when I practised for 12 years up in Portland, somebody'd come to me with a headache. Never had one, and I'd just walk up to them and tap them on their sinuses, and if they collapsed to their knees, they'd know they had a sinus headache. "Oh Doc, why'd you do that?" Well, that's a cheap lab test. Then if they had blood dripping out of their nose, it would take a $35 x-ray to see if they had a cancer in there. 35 bucks and a free lab test as opposed to 421 bucks.
I'm pretty sure he's a nut. But you can never tell.
