The 2018 annual report from the American Association of Poison Control Centers shows zero deaths from any vitamin.
Over the years, the mainstream media has presented many alarming articles about the supposed dangers of vitamin supplements. Invariably, such articles are either without any merit or they exaggerate and misinterpret the studies they refer to. On the other hand, numerous reports on how an insufficient intake of vitamins can contribute to many health problems, and how regular use of supplements has shown impressive health benefits, are much less publicized. Often, such reports are completely ignored.
This is no accident, of course. Ultimately, the reality that the mainstream media is not sharing with us is that vitamins are dangerous only to the pharmaceutical industry. Pharma companies see vitamins as undermining their trillion-dollar-a-year ‘business with disease’ by reducing mankind’s need for patented chemical drugs.
