Robert S. Mendelshon, MD was interested
in the "drug induced nutritional deficiencies" or more subtle "side
effects" from drugs. By interfering with blood clotting factors, aspirin
can lead to hemorrhage and it does reduce levels of vitamin C. Dilantin interferes
with vitamin D metabolism. The antacid, Tums, by interfering with calcium absorption,
can set the stage for osteoporosis. Indeed, all drugs can be divided into two
classesthose already known to induce nutritional deficiencies, and those
not yet adequately studied.
