I take 4 vitamins a day (2 multi & 2 hair and nail), 4 fiber supplements and 2 omega 3 supplements for dry eye. Is there a danger for me taking them?

The only reason for caution is many vits have hazardous synthetic E (dl-alpha tochopehol) instead of natural E (d-alpha toc.) & many have toxic additives. See http://tinyurl.
