Vitamins and mineral do not kill people. If that were so, there would be a ban on oranges. Truth of the matter is, this "study" was poorly conducted. In fact, it wasn't even a scientific study, but rather a survey. One in which the results were horribly skewed until they got the results they wanted. This is just another case of the pharmaceutical companies attempting to steer people away from taking things that actually help people.
Take this study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition for example. Regan Bailey, who headed the study, actually stated, "People need to choose supplements which help meet, but not exceed, the recommended daily intake levels". This is completely backwards. And here's why. The recommended daily intake (RDI) level of Vitamin C is 60mg/day. The same amount found in one orange. So, if you had more than one orange per day, you would be in danger according to Ms. Bailey. In fact, many types of orange juice contain over 100% of the RDI of Vitamin C in one 8oz glass. So apparently we need to be careful at the breakfast table now?
The results from this latest study where the conclusion is "vitamins could kill you" wouldn't even pass a high school science class. One always need to be careful of what the hear or read in the mainstream media when it comes to vitamins. Do your own research rather than blindly believing what you read.
If you would like an excellent retort to this study, I would recommend taking a look at the post Mike Adams at NaturalHealth.com put out regarding the matter. Reading this two-part post will open your eyes and see just how flawed this "study" was.
