Dear Readers,

"Following the recent assessment by the European Food Safety Authority, consumers should be confident that if they comply with the recommended intake of the products, a health risk is excluded".

Again and again messages appear in various media warning in connection with quite adventurous stories against the consumption of dietary supplements. It is often shown that "overdosage of vitamins and minerals can lead to serious illnesses, if not death." However, it is not mentioned that such "presumed overdoses" are quantities that no human can or will inadvertently or accidentally consume.

factual, professional, legal - WRONG !!
