I share the same opinion as the above link in regards to the multivitamins.

May I ask the reason why you are looking for clinical studies pertaining to them?
Good article, thanks JP10

The article itself is not a clinical study, but rather mentions studies and research done by others. It seems to refer to the 5000+ male [physicians] studied I noted in the original post.

I think I am generally of the view in the article, that multivitamins generally have no effect for nearly all people. I remain interested to see more clinical studies surrounding this.

Why am I looking for clinical studies? Because I prefer to use information sources as close to first principles as possible.

A quote in the article that speaks to me:

“The total price tag [for multivitamins] exceeds $12 billion per year—money that Johns Hopkins nutrition experts say might be better spent on nutrient-packed foods like fruit, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products.”
