I love this "logic"!

Quote:
It is estimated that approximately 44 percent of Americans take vitamins and dietary supplements, and as many as 84 percent of Americans consider them safe. As a result, there is an increasing risk of vitamin toxicity.

Sounds to me like he thinks the only acceptable "risk", no matter how small, is one your doctor manages. No, don't leave the house, you might trip going down the stairs! No, don't get in your car and go to work, you might have an accident! No, don't get out of bed - the world is a dangerous place!

I got news for ya, doc: Staying in bed causes bedsores. And your 'scripts are the equivalent of playing on the railroad tracks. You're no good judge of acceptable risk.

(And that's not even going into all the lies and bad studies he's citing.)

Check the text from Austrian lead newspaper:

Front cover: The Vitamin Lie - The billion dollar business with unnecessary pills

The Swiss medical professor Peter J√ľni estimates that consumption of vitamin supplements in Germany "for several thousand deaths per year" could be responsible.

As an Austrian first thought what a shame. But then I saw it was in the 'Spiegel', a German paper. It is scary with how much pure propaganda they make headlines these days. Also that my last vitacost parcel came through a German airport..
