    Look at a plant, a plant gets too much nutrition, and they are thriving!

    Same thing with a humans. A human can get too much nutrition, and it would be alive as heck.

    YOU CANNOT OVER-CONSUME ANY NATURAL FOOD SUCH AS FRUITS, VEGETABLES, NUTS AND SEEDS. ITS IMPOSSIBLE. People don't die from eating too many oranges for example.

    However, over-consuming supplements IS possible. People have died overdosing on supplements. This is because most of the vitamins are synthetically manufactured, and they act as toxins in the body, not bio-friendly.

    Vitamin poisoning, hypervitaminosis or vitamin overdose refers to a condition of high storage levels of vitamins, which can lead to toxic symptoms. The medical names of the different conditions are derived from the vitamin involved: an excess of vitamin A, for example, is called hypervitaminosis A.

    Generally, toxic levels of vitamins are achieved through high supplement intake and not from dietary sources. Toxicities of fat-soluble vitamins result also can be caused by a large intake of highly fortified foods, but foods rarely deliver dangerous levels of water-soluble vitamins.[1]

    The Dietary Reference Intake recommendations from the United States Department of Agriculture define a "tolerable upper intake level" for most vitamins.

    High dosage vitamin A; high dosage, slow release vitamin B3; and very high dosage vitamin B6 alone (i.e. without vitamin B complex) are sometimes associated with vitamin side effects that usually rapidly cease with supplement reduction or cessation.
