  • Supplements that are deemed hazardous are typically “spiked” with some form of pharmaceutical drug or synthetic ingredient
  • Suspect products are typically of the “diet” or “fat burner” variety, along with muscle-building and high-energy products
  • Vitamin supplements have an enviably safety profile. Data from the European Union indicate that pharmaceutical drugs are 62,000 times as likely to kill you as dietary supplements
