You're making this way too easy. I clicked on your PubMed link and got "Neurology". Not "J Neurol".

You're jumping to conclusions again. I have gingervitis (Google search if you are culturally deprived and don't understand the term.) and have to stay out of the sun. Have you ever heard of biochemical individuality?
[quote]Accelerated Cognitive Decline among people consuming 1.6mg or more.[J Archives of Neurology Aug 2006][/quote]
This is another example of why we demand PMIDs. You got the journal name wrong again. It's Archives of Neurology. And you misrepresented the results again. Copper was found to hurt only those who consume high amounts of saturated and trans fats.

BACKGROUND: Evidence from prospective epidemiologic studies and animal models suggests that intakes of dietary fats and copper may be associated with neurodegenerative diseases. OBJECTIVE: To examine whether high dietary copper intake is associated with increased cognitive decline among persons who also consume a diet high in saturated and trans fats. DESIGN: Community-based prospective study. SETTING: Chicago, Ill.Patients Chicago residents 65 years and older. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Cognitive function was assessed using 4 cognitive tests administered during in-home interviews at 3-year intervals for 6 years. Dietary assessment was performed with a food frequency questionnaire. Dietary intakes of copper and fats were related to change in global cognitive score (the mean of the 4 tests) among 3718 participants. RESULTS: Among persons whose diets were high in saturated and trans fats, higher copper intake was associated with a faster rate of cognitive decline. In multiple-adjusted mixed models, the difference in rates for persons in the highest (median, 2.75 mg/d) vs lowest (median, 0.88 mg/d) quintiles of total copper intake was -6.14 standardized units per year (P<.001) or the equivalent of 19 more years of age. There was also a marginally statistically significant association (P = .07) with the highest quintile of food intake of copper (median, 1.51 mg/d) and a strong dose-response association with higher copper dose in vitamin supplements. Copper intake was not associated with cognitive change among persons whose diets were not high in these fats.
CONCLUSION: These data suggest that high dietary intake of copper in conjunction with a diet high in saturated and trans fats may be associated with accelerated cognitive decline.
[quote]99% of all Multi's have 15mg of Zn except AOR's Multi for no good reason.[/quote]
The RDA was changed and AOR was the only company that noticed. I shall post the reference for a second time. I apologize for asking you to read a scary National Academy of Science book instead of Men's Health or Prevention.http://books.nap.edu...=10026&page=442

Vanadium--an element of atypical biological significance.

The biological image of the transition element vanadium ferments a great deal of contradiction-from toxicity to essentiality. Importance of this element as micro-nutrient is yet to be unequivocally accepted by biologists and biomedical scientists. In spite of toxicity, it seems interesting to analyze the different biological roles of the element. Vanadium compounds have been proven to be associated with various implications in the pathogenesis of some human diseases and also in maintaining normal body functions. Salts of vanadium interfere with an essential array of enzymatic systems such as different ATPases, protein kinases, ribonucleases and phosphatases. While vanadium deficiency accounts for several physiological malfunctionings including thyroid, glucose and lipid metabolism, etc., several genes are regulated by this element or by its compounds, which include genes for tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), Interleukin-8 (IL-8), activator protein-1 (AP-1), ras, c-raf-1, mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK), p53, nuclear factors-kappaB, etc. All these seem to be not far from its recognition as an element of pharmacological and nutritional significance, which is revealed through its increasing therapeutic uses in diabetes. Vanadium is also emerging as a potent anti-carcinogenic agent. This review summarizes the developments related to vanadium biology as a whole by analyzing the general biochemical functions of vanadium.
[quote]AOR's Ortho-Core even has some synthetic vitamin E (petroleum) in it's other ingredients[/quote]
As the last ingredient listed by weight. < 0.003%. This is like worrying about the cocaine residues on money. Your mention of petroleum is irrelevant and is a shameless tactic used to frighten the ignorant. Synthetic vitamin E is a mixture of eight stereoisomers of alpha tocopherol that are not present in crude oil. It's bad because it can displace other tocopherols, not because of its origin.
By the way, POSSESSIVE ITS HAS NO APOSTROPHE!
