Micronutrients boost life quality for elderly with heart failure

is very good news and makes several interesting points.
Dr Klaus Witte wrote:<b>Supplements containing vitamins and other micronutrients can improve heart function and quality of life in elderly patients with chronic heart failure, claims a joint British-German study. </b>
1. The author is quoted as saying, "Our study is unique because it is the first to look at patients with heart failure with a combination of micronutrients. "
Consider that it is almost the year 2006, and this is the first study to ever investigate a combination of micronutrients in heart failure?! Amazing, almost beyond belief.
2. The author goes on to say, "All minerals were given in doses less than the recommended daily intake (RDI). The doses of vitamins were in excess of the RDI, but never greater than the upper safe limit for total daily intake."
This illustrates why the drug companies are pushing so hard for the "upper safe limits." These completely arbitrary limits restrict orthodox researchers from using the amount of vitamin C that might demonstrate better results. (How do we know this maxium limit is arbitrary - because the authors admit that this is the first study of a combination of micronutrients in heart failure. How could such a limit be objectively set if micronutrients are not being rigorously studied?!?
