Vitamin E Research Ignored by Major News Media
Coast-to-Coast Censorship
(OMNS, May 25, 2010) If you think Medline and Wikipedia are biased, take a
look through your newspapers and magazines. For example, have you noticed
how the news media are quick to publish negative allegations about vitamin
E, but slow to present the positive side?

Here's a check to see if this is so: Have you seen any articles on the
effectiveness of vitamin E therapy reported in your daily newspaper?

* Increasing vitamin E prevents COPD [Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,
emphysema, chronic bronchitis] (Agler AH et al. Randomized vitamin E
supplementation and risk of chronic lung disease (CLD) in the Women's Health
Study. American Thoracic Society 2010 International Conference, May 18,
2010.) Summary at

* 800 IU vitamin E per day is a successful treatment for fatty liver
disease. (Sanyal AJ, Chalasani N, Kowdley KV et al. Pioglitazone, vitamin E,
or placebo for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. N Engl J Med. 2010 May
6;362(18):1675-85.) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20427778

* Alzheimer's patients who take 2,000 IU of vitamin E per day live longer.
(Pavlik VN, Doody RS, Rountree SD, Darby EJ. Vitamin E use is associated
with improved survival in an Alzheimer's disease cohort. Dement Geriatr Cogn
Disord. 2009;28(6):536-40.) Summary at

See also: Grundman M. Vitamin E and Alzheimer disease: the basis for
additional clinical trials. Am J Clin Nutr. 2000 Feb;71(2):630S-636S. Free
access to full text at http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/full/71/2/630s )

* Taking 300 IU vitamin E per day reduces lung cancer by 61%. (Mahabir S,
Schendel K, Dong YQ et al. Dietary alpha-, beta-, gamma- and
delta-tocopherols in lung cancer risk. Int J Cancer. 2008 Sep
1;123(5):1173-80.) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18546288

* 400 to 800 IU of vitamin E daily reduces risk of heart attack by 77%.
(Stephens NG et al. Randomized controlled trial of vitamin E in patients
with coronary artery disease: Cambridge Heart Antioxidant Study (CHAOS).
Lancet, March 23, 1996; 347:781-786.)

* 400 IU of Vitamin E per day reduces epileptic seizures in children by more
than 60%. (Ogunmekan AO, Hwang PA. A randomized, double-blind,
placebo-controlled, clinical trial of D-alpha-tocopheryl acetate [vitamin
E], as add-on therapy, for epilepsy in children. Epilepsia. 1989 Jan-Feb;
30(1):84-9.) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2643513

Such effective quantities of vitamin E positively cannot be obtained from
diet alone. 400 IU is over 25 times the adult US RDA for vitamin E. Is that
a lot, or is the government recommendation too low?

Have you seen any article in any major newspaper or magazine pushing to
raise the RDA?

This might be a good time for them to do so: they need the readership. The
New York Times is over a billion dollars in debt. (1) Newsweek, having lost
$40 million in just the last two years, is now for sale. (2) This could
explain why they are so anti-supplement (and pro-pharmaceutical), since they
appear to depend on drug advertising money to try to keep afloat.

The Orthomolecular Medicine News Service takes no advertising from anybody
and is free of charge. It is not in debt, and it is not for sale. OMNS will
continue to announce and advocate vitamin therapy, because it works.

If you would like to join in, please consider writing a pro-vitamin letter
to the editor of your local newspaper or favorite magazine. OMNS would
welcome a copy of your correspondence.

These doctors say, Raise the RDA now:

You are an ignorant toad. Publishing and post crap as if it were the final
word, especially when scientific research has shown the downside of
vitamins. Taking too much, etc. Increased death risks, etc. Contrary to the
like that most homopathetics post, death and disease follows high dosage of
vitamins, especially in the megadosing.

How about acting like a mature adult and tempor your posts, try doing a real
analysis instead of agendizing your health notions and creating a scenario
for 1000's of lost lives due to following your witch craft hocus pocus. K?
