During my resent research, I found this press release and report about the safety of minerals and vitamin supplements.
by Andrew W. Saul, Editor
(OMNS Jan 14, 2015) There were no deaths whatsoever from vitamins in the year 2013. The 31st annual report from the American Association of Poison Control Centers shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins.

Zero deaths from vitamins. Want to bet this will never be on the evening news?

I wish prescription medications could claim the same excellent safety record as vitamins. Alas, in an average year, there are at least 106,000 deaths and over 450,000 adverse events reported due to prescription drugs
