In a short article in the Townsend Letter, April 2010, there is the shocking information that in 2008 report (most recent data available) of the US National Poison Data System published in the journal Clinical Toxicology shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins, zero deaths from any of the B vitamins, zero deaths from vitamins A, C, D, or E and zero deaths from any other vitamin. No deaths from amino acids or herbal products and zero deaths from dietary mineral supplements.
Here is the real story they reported; “Over half of the US population takes daily nutritional supplements. If each one of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes 154,000,000 individual doses per day, for a total of over 56 billion doses annually.” People take more than one vitamin a day. According to the FDA and news media these are dangerous pills. OR…. could it be these facts are dangerous to the drug companies bottom line?
Each of us needs to dedicate the next year to seeking the truth on subjects we are concerned with. We need to set the example of truth in data and utterances and perhaps our government and its agencies will catch on, you know your behavior is contagious. Good or bad.
Contrast this information with all the deaths attributed to the correct prescription use of pharmaceutical drugs, not to mention the incorrect use, and I am going to stick with my supplements, organic foods and enjoy the production and extra time I create with my health.
