    Default Zero Deaths From Vitamins 36th Annual Report From AAPCC

    NO DEATHS FROM VITAMINS. None.
    Supplement Safety Confirmed by America’s Largest Database



    (OMNS December 16, 2019) The 36th annual report from the American Association of Poison Control Centers shows zero deaths from any vitamin. Supporting data is in Table 22B, p 1412-1413, at the very end of the report published in Clinical Toxicology.

    Thanks for posting, Julieanne. This is the first side by side comparison I've seen of deaths caused by drugs vs. supplements. I wish the data had been more current. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) report showing no deaths was published in 2013, and based on 2011 data. On drug deaths, the source was JAMA in 1998; this data is 21 yrs. old. Again, I'm happy about no deaths from supplements; just wish the data was not almost a decade old.

    But the Health Impact News report is dated December 2019.

    Good catch!! The graphic at the beginning of the article shows the data points I referenced, but the actual data cited in the narrative is based on 2018 poison control data. So, I was confused by the graphic. Thanks for helping me to figure this out.
