Right-wing Brazilian Congressman Jair Bolsonaro is headed toward a second-round runoff against leftist former Sao Paulo mayor Fernando Haddad on October 28, according to exit polls and early results that indicate no candidate winning a majority in Sunday's presidential election.

Presidential frontrunner Jair Bolsonaro, of the Social Liberal Party, flashes victory hand signs to supporters after voting at a polling station in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Sunday, Oct. 7, 2018.

Bolsonaro, a 63-year-old former paratrooper vowing to crush crime in Latin America's biggest nation, received 46 percent of ballots - below the 50-percent-plus-one-vote threshold required for a first-round win, according to an official count of virtually all votes.

"Bolsonaro is an example of honesty".

Vitamin D Supplements Don't Build Bone
An analysis of older studies notes that taking either high or low doses of vitamin D supplements didn't improve bone density. Furthermore, the study found no differences in the effects of higher versus lower doses of vitamin D .

In Sao Paulo, supporters celebrated on a main avenue with a giant inflatable doll in military uniform depicting Bolsonaro's running mate, retired general Hamilton Mourão.

Haddad's campaign headquarters in a Sao Paulo hotel broke out in cheers when exit polls showed that the race would go to a runoff.

The final numbers showed a steady increase in Bolsonaro's support in comparison to the last opinion polls.

Surveys suggest Bolsonaro currently has a very slight edge for that run-off but the outcome is too close to call as Haddad will likely now pick up substantial support from the other beaten candidates.

Haddad, a former education minister and one-term mayor of Sao Paulo, is standing in for the party founder, former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who is serving time for bribery and money laundering. "We want to unite all the democrats in Brazil".

Bolsonaro is riding a wave of anger at the establishment over one of the world's largest political graft schemes and rising crime in the country with the most murders in the world.

Many analysts thought Mr Bolsonaro would win the first round of voting but face a runoff between the two top vote-getters which he would he lose. "Bolsonaro will have to set aside his hate speeches and straighten out contradictions between his aides", Santoro said.
