I’ve been pretty under the weather the last few days after a mild hiking excursion on Saturday. It was getting a little nippy toward the end and I was feeling the chills after church the next day. I haven’t been able to take much time off work to recover, due to deadlines and all, so I’ve been returning home and hiding under the covers while sweating, shivering, coughing, blowing my nose, and tossing and turning due to my legs which ached because of the hiking. I haven’t been sick for awhile. I’ve been taking these gummy vitamins and the fact that they taste like candy is incentive enough for me to take them on a regular basis. You’re only supposed to take two to get your daily allowance of vitamins, but the kid in me wishes they were less potent, so you had to eat 20 of them to get your daily dose. Required gummy snacks as part of a healthy diet? Yes please!

From personal experience/accident, one may indeed OD on gummy vitamins (significant multiplier on the prescribed daily dose) and survive very normally. It proves the “two” is not a “not to exceed” amount.

From personal experience, I’ve learned that it’s also virtually impossible to OD on gummy non-vitamins (multiplier on vitamin daily dose is 0). If you’re not diabetic that is.

Do actuarial exams require this type of analysis? The answers come so readily….. 🙂

Yes there’s a whole exam devoted to vitamin multipliers.
