No Improvement Found In Cognitive Ability In Older Men Who Take Vitamins.

The Washington Post (12/24, Searing) reports that according to a study published Dec. 17 in the Annals of Internal Medicine, “at least for men, taking multivitamins doesn’t seem to benefit the brain.” The 12-year study, which involved some 5,947 aged 65 and older who were randomized either to a multivitamin or placebo, revealed “no difference…in the average cognitive ability or rate of cognitive decline between men who were taking a multivitamin and those who were not.”
