“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”

This quote applies to some politicians and medical people as to the inaccurate information they are creating about the lack of safety in regard to vitamins and nutritional supplements.  Below are the true facts:

  • 4,500,000 health care visits annually due to adverse drug events
  • 400,000 hospitalizations due to adverse drug events
  • 106,000 people die every year from reactions to prescribed drugs
  • 150,000,000 (one hundred and fifty million) people take vitamins daily
  • 3300 adverse annual events associated with vitamin supplements
  • 0 (Zero) deaths of adults annually due to any dietary supplement
