deej - Ya, I know about that study. The head psychiatrist at Mental Health has talked to me about it (I believe the head researcher was a classmate of his).

I thought it was some megavitamin-type treatment with a twist. The head pdoc says his buddy says that it works, but we both want to see the double blind results. Our pdoc says that the reseacher has a credible reputation and that he respects him.

When you think of vitamin treatments, you tend to think of deficiency states. More of a vitamin than your body needs really doesn't do anything (except make you pee fluorescent yellow with the water soluble B-complex & C ones). Vitamins have been tried before in all kinds of mental disorders without any really convincing results; although I don't know what the "twist" is in this case.

It's a wait a see thing. I'll let you know if I here anything. Media reports of unreleased and unproven research are annoying (remember the comet on a crash course with the earth; or cold fusion).

BTW - I am having lunch with the head pdoc on Thursday, I'll ask him if he has heard any preliminary results.

Take it easy, shaky (BTW - that was the ground, not you) - Cam
