Alternative To Typical Synthetic Supplements Is Needed, Say Experts Whole food supplements is a topic of worldwide interest currently. A profusion of proof has recently emerged suggesting that normal synthetic multivitamin supplements may be hazardous to your health. Goran Bjelakovic, a reputed scientist from the University of Copenhagen, headed up an enormous meta-study that viewed the results of 67 placebo-controlled trials previously performed to look for the effects of supplement and anti-oxidant supplements on durability. In the final end, the scholarly research combined observations of 232 000 test subjects. Through the use of such a large population sample, a report can become a lot more powerful with regards to spotting large-scale developments and overcoming human bias. The total results of the analysis, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, were nothing significantly less than shocking. Looking at patients with diabetes, cardiovascular disease and lung cancer, as well as healthy, normal individuals, there is no apparent benefit to taking popular fractionated supplements like Vitamin A, Supplement E, Vitamin C, Selenium, or beta-Carotene. Actually, the results went in the opposite direction - there is a greater chance of loss of life (16 percent) amongst Supplement A users, a 7 percent higher death count amongst beta-Carotene users, and a 4 percent mortality increase in Vitamin E users. Beta-Carotene and Retinol, marketed as anti-carcinogenic agents, may promote lung tumor. That's right - pills advertised as helping you towards a longer, healthier life are actually correlated with a speedier demise. This scholarly study used typical supplements on the market created from synthetic vitamins. To add salt to the wound, a recent study published in the British Journal of Diet under the unimaginative title of "Ascorbic Acid Supplementation Does Not Attenuate Post-Exercise Muscle Soreness Following Muscle-Damaging Exercise But May Delay The Recovery Process" indicated that supplementation with anti-oxidants from synthetic sources may reverse lots of the beneficial effects of physical training. Now, this isn't to state that anti-oxidants or vitamin supplements are bad for you. Far from it - these supplements were created based on solid science. Anti-oxidants are thought to protect cells from the ravages of free radicals still. The nagging problem, rather, is the theory that you can get those benefits from synthetic isolated compounds. Disease and the aging process are usually far more complicated than test-tube studies can take into account. Furthermore, the problem of bioavailability can be an ever-present concern. Many typical synthetic supplements include huge amounts of the publicized vitamin, but absence the additional compounds needed to ensure that their key substances are actually assimilated by your body. Passing right through the digestive system, these 'miracle health cures' often find yourself doing little beyond providing people expensive urine. To the rescue...Entire Food Supplements.

I wanted to let y'all now that Clifford Eugene Hansford (who served in the 68th AIB in France and Germany during WW2), died Feb. 23, at age 92.
He is survived by his wife Geneva and son Larry. I'm a friend.

My father was in the 14th armored 68th infantry.  I found your site while looking for information.  A recent book on this unit was written by Timothy O'Keefe.  "Battle Yet Unsung". There are also some pictures of other servicemen.

Hi Mark,

I knew your grandfather. He was in my squad. The last time I saw him, I loaned him my watch for guard duty in january of 1945. Later the same day, I was wounded and got sent to the hospital. By the time I rejoined the squad it was a few months later and he wasn't there. Feel free to email me. Kind Regards, Morris Berman

I was liberated from Stalag VII A on April 29, 1945 .I was a tailgunner on a B-24. Shot down March 12, 1945 near Gordisa in Hungary, attempting to land in Pecs behind Russian lines , after damage bombing Florisdorf Oil refinery in Vienna. Captured in no mans land between Russo-German lines. Retreating Germans brought me into VIIA Wednesday before liberation. Second time I bailed out .First time into Bosnia .Partisans helped me return to base in Italy

Finally read your story of our liberation Thank You
