No Deaths from Vitamins. Absolutely None.
Safety Confirmed by America’s Largest Database
by Andrew W. Saul, Editor
(OMNS, Jan 3, 2016) There were no deaths whatsoever from vitamins in the year 2014. The 32th annual report from the American Association of Poison Control Centers shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins. And, there were no deaths whatsoever from vitamin A, niacin, vitamin B-6, any other B-vitamin. There were no deaths from vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, or from any vitamin at all.
Zero deaths from vitamins. Want to bet this will never be on the evening news? Well, have you seen it there? And why not?
After all, over half of the U.S. population takes daily nutritional supplements. If each of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes about 170,000,000 individual doses per day, for a total of well over 60 billion doses annually. Since many persons take far more than just one single vitamin tablet, actual consumption is considerably higher, and the safety of vitamin supplements is all the more remarkable.
Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD, always said: ”No one dies from vitamins.” He was right when he said it and he is still right today.
