    That's a fancy way of saying diet and exercise.

    Fascinating article.

    The decline effect and the scientific method : The New Yorker

    But now all sorts of well-established, multiply confirmed findings have started to look increasingly uncertain. Itís as if our facts were losing their truth: claims that have been enshrined in textbooks are suddenly unprovable. This phenomenon doesnít yet have an official name, but itís occurring across a wide range of fields, from psychology to ecology. In the field of medicine, the phenomenon seems extremely widespread, affecting not only antipsychotics but also therapies ranging from cardiac stents to Vitamin E and antidepressants: Davis has a forthcoming analysis demonstrating that the efficacy of antidepressants has gone down as much as threefold in recent decades.

    The Vitamin Myth: Why We Think We Need Supplements - Paul Offit - The Atlantic

    On October 10, 2011, researchers from the University of Minnesota found that women who took supplemental multivitamins died at rates higher than those who didn't. Two days later, researchers from the Cleveland Clinic found that men who took vitamin E had an increased risk of prostate cancer. "It's been a tough week for vitamins," said Carrie Gann of ABC News.
    These findings weren't new. Seven previous studies had already shown that vitamins increased the risk of cancer and heart disease and shortened lives.
