The safety of vitamins versus drugs

The American Association of Poison Control Centres produces the NPDS annual report. What´s that? It is over 220 pages and gives statistics and information on all poisonings in America in a Calendar Year. It involves the largest database in health. The 2010 report came out at the end of 2011. It covers everything from calls and visits to centres, to reason for visit, to medical outcome.

The interesting fact is that during the whole of 2010 there was not one death caused by a herb or a vitamin, or a combination of either. Which is a lot more than can be said for prescription drugs, in combination or, even, on their own.

And remember, this is not some theoretical extrapolation of research results by scientists. This is real life and what actually took place.

As an example, let us look at information on ´Substance Categories most frequently involved in human exposure´:

Analgesics                                     9.70%
Cosmetic/Personal Care Product      9.70%
Cleaning Products (Household)        8.41%
Sedatives/Hypnotics/Antipsychotics 3.12%
Pesticides;                                     4.02%
Antihistamines                               3.23%
Cold and Cough Preparations           2.69%
Antimicrobials                                 2.57%
Cardivascular Drugs                        2.26%
Antidepressants                              2.03%
Gastrointestinal Preparations           1.99%

Vitamins were in the list at 2.92%.

But when the list of ´Categories associated with the largest numbers of fatalities´ was presented.

Acetaminophen Combinations                   8.51%
Acetaminophen alone                                7.85%
Opiods                                                    7.72%
Miscellaneous Cardiovascular Drugs              6.94%
Miscellaneous Alcohols                               4.97%
Misc Sedative/Hypnotics/Antipsychotics        3.80%
Miscellaneous Chemicals                             3.80%   
Cyclic Antidepressants                               2.75%
Acetylsalicylic Acid Alone                            2.75%
Miscellaneous Antidepressants                     2.09%
Antihistamines                                          1.75%
Miscellaneous Hormones/Hormone Antagonists 1.05%

.. vitamins was no longer an issue at all. Not one death from a herb or a vitamin.

Beware people claiming prescription drugs are safe and vitamins are dangerous. Their claims are simply not endorsed by reality. 

Please be clear: At CANCERactive we do not consider the above compound to be a cure for cancer, despite what the research says or experts doing the research may claim. The above, is an article on the compound from published research and expert opinion in the public domain. At CANCERactive we do not believe that any single compound (drug, vitamin, whatever) is a cure for cancer. We believe that people can significantly increase their personal odds of survival by building an Integrated Programme of treatments. Equally, cancer prevention is best practiced through a width of measures.
