While we probably think there’s no harm in taking as many vitamins as possible, this study finds that overdosing on some supplements can increase your risk of death.

A new study demonstrates the ineffectiveness of dietary supplements in reducing the risk of death. Some may even have the opposite effect.

Published in The Annals of Internal Medicine, this research was carried out on 30,899 adult Americans aged 20 and over, who participated in a national survey on health and nutrition between 1999 and 2010.

These participants answered questions on their consumption of dietary supplements.

The purpose of this research, from Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University in the United States, was to evaluate the link between use of dietary supplements, the level of nutrients obtained from food and supplements, and mortality in American adults.
