(From Malay Mail)
IT can be dangerous to take too many fat-soluble vitamins as these can build up in the body.
Taking too many water-soluble vitamins is less harmful because the body can get rid of these easily.
High doses of vitamins over a long period of time can lead to side-effects.
Scientists don't know what the risks might be for all vitamins.
Some examples of the known risks include: * Vitamin A - an increased risk of broken bones, which may be permanent.
* Vitamin B6 - loss of feeling in the arms or legs called peripheral neuropathy, which is usually, though not always, reversible when intake is reduced.
