Men taking multivitamin supplements for at least 50 mg of vitamin C per day had 41% lower mortality rates and six years greater life expectancy in a 10-year study of 11K Americans. Women benefited somewhat less. [James Enstrom, UCLA JCCC. BLP, 1/30/93.]

Some of the food triggers for migraine headache are red wine, MSG, aged cheese, and a few smoked foods. Triggers for RSI and for gout may be similar, including bread, pizza dough, champagne, beer, chocolate, and red meat. At least one doctor of traditional Chinese medicine suggests avoiding wine, beer, vinegar, chili-hot food, cold drinks, duck, beans, peas, and nuts.
