> Thank you for this. I had to read it a couple of times to digest it all, but you certainly convinced me of some correlations. I've always felt that it was impossible to get RDAs of vitamins from diets. I couldn't see how I could ever do it, given the number of calories I typically ingest.

I'm glad you got something useful out of my perhaps over-long answer. It depends on how you frame your questions, the type of answers you'll receive. I've talked to professional nutritionists, and I came away scared. Not that my sample of that group was extensive, but I didn't find one of them who even accepted that there was anything to debate. I heard dogma, not evidence.
I don't presume that anybody reading what I had to say would be left without questions or concerns of their own, so I do welcome further discussion.
