Tufts University‘ does have a good reputation and is usually thought of as being credible.

This was also a relatively large study, i.e., 27,000 U.S. adults. So, I think you have to give it some credence.

Yes, yes, yes, you can always find studies that will say the opposite.

I will confess I have become more and more skeptical on the benefits of vitamins over the years. I smile when folks older than I wax lyrical about how Vitamin C helps ward off colds.

I learnt, just yesterday, to my cost, that Vitamin E oil does not do diddly to reduce scarring! I had been applying it on the scar I have from my knee surgery.

Now this. I do NOT take Vitamin D or Calcium on their own.

I do, because my doctor insists that I do, take a single multivitamin for old men each night.

I do, however, know folks who take Vitamin D and Calcium. I will have to tell them about this study.

Wow. What was he thinking. He had to have been rather desperate & ‘sick’. Feel bad for him.

Ambassador to D.C. no less. That is kind of close to home in that my adoptive father was Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to D.C. from 1992 — 1994 (when he retired, aged 65.)

After all the spate of positive stories about New Zealand (albeit in the wake of the horrible mosque massacre) this is quite a shame. New Zealanders, in general, must be mortified. I feel for them. I guess he is most likely headed to prison.

Kapruka.com‘ does not miss an opportunity to showcase and market their amazing cakes — albeit these cakes (luckily for I) only being available in Sri Lanka.

Given that I have shared many of their cakes with you over the years, I know that there are many among you who like to see the latest, mouth-watering temptations making the rounds in Sri Lanka. So, here are the Sinhala New Year (Aluth Avurudda) 2019. In addition to cakes, they also do traditional food ‘hampers’ for the New Year. I will try and showcase those tomorrow.

In case you are wondering I am nothing but a customer when it comes to Kapruka. Though I give them huge amount of publicity I get nothing from them. That is OK. They have never asked me to do these posts. I do them for YOU.

Happy Sinhala New Year 2019.

The 3rd New Year of the Year for I.
But you can never have too many.

Enjoy. Rejoice.
