Too much of a good thing is bad (?)

When it comes to vitamins, it appears you could have too much of a good thing, say researchers who report a link between their use and higher death rates among older women.
BBC News - Vitamins linked with higher death risk in older women

We have an Afrikaans saying "te veel van 'n goeie ding is nie gesond nie" meaning that too much of a good thing is not healthy. We are all just a lot of guinea pigs for scientists. This is almost like the ongoing butter versus margarine debate. At one stage we had an article in a local magazine, saying that "braaivleis" (Afrikaans for barbeque, or grilled meat over open wood fire/coals), causes cancer. I "braai" at least twice a week (it is almost South Africa's favorite pass time, particularly over weekends) , we have such nice weather to do it in, why not? if I have to worry about every new scientific finding, I would probably not have any time to really live life

Moderation in all things, including moderation. Only be moderately moderate.

I recall an old preacher saying, "Ya gotta blow hot or ya gotta blow cold or the good lord will spew you from the side of his mouth!" I hate when that happens. So I try not to be excessively moderate, just moderately excessive.

Aaargh, I hope the Mod Squad doesn't cream me for this.
