The 38th annual report from the American Association of poison control centers shows zero deaths from vitamins. This report was published in the journal Clinical Toxicology. Not only were there no deaths from vitamins there were no fatalities from amino acids, creatine, blue-green algae, glucosamine, or chondroitin. There were no deaths from any homeopathic remedy.
If we look at the number of people taking at least one single tablet daily of a multivitamin or supplement that equals approximately 170 million individual doses per day or well over 60 billion doses annually! Not one death! If nutritional supplements are allegedly as dangerous as the FDA says, where are all the fatalities?*
Now let’s ask the question, how many people died from FDA approved medications in the last year?
It’s an astounding 106,000 deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines. (source)
If you are working toward health and need a treatment, go natural and unless you are severely ill, shun the pharmacy.
You will not die from an herb, vitamin or homeopathic. The chances of death from an approved drug is very real. Just to put this into perspective…
If you took 106,000 people and were flying them all in one year by airplane, they would fill up about 700 planes. Planes ARE safe, and they rarely crash. It’s a big event when they do. No one thinks twice about climbing aboard.
But… if they all crashed in the same year, almost two jets a day, would you fly?
Don’t be blinded by the propaganda.
The truth is very plain to see.
At LifeWorks we endeavor to do no harm, and with our natural medicine chest, we don’t.
Have a great week.
