    Default B12 overdose?

    I was watching a TV programme last night which highlighted the dangers of taking too much vitamin A. While I don't take a multivitamin, I have recently started taking a B12 supplement. I noticed it has 100,000 times the EC RDA for B12 (1000 ug). This seems an awful lot. Should I be worried?

    Same one that's on VeganMike's avatar, by the way!

    I take a 1000ug B12, and I don't worry what the RDA is. There is certainly a problem with overdosing VitA though.

    by the way, do read through the B12 threads on this forum, as there's very useful info there.
