(From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dietary_supplement):

"Criticisms of vitamin supplementation

A 2007 study found that regular supplementation with vitamin E, beta carotene and vitamin A increased mortality by four, seven and sixteen percent respectively.[11]

The same study also suggested that vitamin C and selenium had no effect, positive or negative on longevity."

It seems there is still a lot of research needed into this area.

Wow I'd forgotten about this - I've just re-read this whole thread. I want to live as long as possible so these vitamin supplements aren't going to feature in my diet if that's the case.

Holy crap that amount of lemon would kill me! :D

And great pic updates, although you need to get some shots that are more zoomed out! Does your camera have a timer? Are you shy? :P

Also did you draw your avatar pic or did you just happen to find one that goes well with your name?

If you want to do well on raw, then eat more calories from bananas/dates! Man, I would not be able to bang it on the bike if I tried to eat my calories from melons! You'd need to eat 22lbs of melons to get at least 3000cals. Dates/bananas make it easy to be a gorilla vs a starved pygmy marmoset!

Read Doug Graham's book 'Nutrition & Athletic performance'.

Get the calories in!!! You wont see any bodybuilder/athlete eating light on the calories to get stronger.

Here is Doug Graham in action from last week. He showed me the importance of eating enough fruit if you like the raw lifestyle. Otherwise you just become emaciated, binge prone, depressed and a bad example. Rice or fruit, just be sure to eat 3000cals+ a day if you want to live hard.
