Cancer and Heart Disease

Today (26 April 2015) I filed the following RTI with Indian Coucil for Medical Reasearch. What do you think how fast ICMR) will reply to this RTI. Does ICMR really know how things are happening at various levels.

“Brief Facts prompting his RTI –

Cancer and Heart Diseases

American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2015 says that its research spread over last 20 years suggests that supplements for vitamin and mineral deficiencies is increasing risk of developing cancer and heart diseases.

And it adds that it does not know why it is happening. That is shocking

After spending 20 years advising people to take supplements for Vitamins and Minerals, it says that it does not know why increase in supplements is causing increase in cancer and heart diseases.

Does it not mean that 20 years back when AACR recommended the increase it knew nothing about supplementation – how supplements will improve health.

And after 20 years it throws back the same ball at the consumers by still insisting that correct doses may improve the health in the end.

There is an interesting question here Who and how Recommended Daily Allowances for Vitamins and Minerals is decided.”
