No Poisoning Deaths Attributed to Dietary Supplements
In a single year, there were zero dietary supplement-caused (vitamins, minerals, amino acid or herbal products) deaths reported. Since over 50% of the U.S. population takes dietary supplements daily, that calculates to 154,000,000 individual doses per day, and 56 billion doses per year. Compared with modern medicine being a leading cause of death in the U.S., your odds are pretty good if you start on an important supplemental regimen for your health.

HPV Strains Cleared by Mushroom Supplement
Supplementation of Coriolus versicolor mushrooms, at a dosage of 3 mg a day, clears high-risk strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) in women. This may be due to antimicrobial, antiviral and antitumor properties of the mushroom. (See Immulyn™, NSF Spectrum™) Clinical Journal of Mycology.
Drugs are dangerous enough. Now there is a huge worldwide counterfeit drug market. Fake, out of date, and poorly manufactured drugs can make their way quite easily into the supply chain since drugs can pass through a dozen or more hands on their way to you. In one year alone there are almost 1000 arrests and seizures of more than 11 million tablets. That's the tip of the iceberg.
Legitimate pharmaceutical factories around the world make one thing during the day, and counterfeit stuff at night. Viagra and Cialis are favorite targets. Tamiflu from India turned out to be talc and Tylenol. If all the fake drugs were just sugar pills that would be a good thing, since, as you know, legitimate drugs are close to the number one killer in the country. But they aren't always, and can contain toxins even worse than the drugs. All the more reason to not rest your hope in modern medicine and its pills. Get control of your own health destiny. After all, it's your responsibility, not someone else's. The Scientist.
