Hi guys
Could you tell me which preposition I should use here and why?

1.This medicine is bad FOR our health if taken in large quantities.
2.This medicine is bad TO our health if taken in large quantities.

    Only your first sentence is correct. Something can be good for you, or bad for you. If you want to use to after bad you would generally use a verb. It is bad to smoke.
