Herbs, vitamins that can hurt you - CNN.com

 
Since many of us treat symptoms with non-prescription supplements -- especially when doctors refuse to prescribe anything for those symptoms -- this article is important reading.

this is all well and good...we should always know what we're putting in our bodies.

the thing that gets me is there are over 100,000 deaths a year attributable to prescription drugs and that is drugs that are used AS PRESCRIBED.

there is by no means the same sort of death rate with supplements. Period.

prescription drugs are by far much more dangerous.

It serves us well to research all we choose to put into our bodies and to not get our information only from MDs who often do not know what they are doing when it comes to polypharma etc.

Supplements too pose a risk sometimes and it's not a wise assumption to conclude "natural" is safe.
