Now here's a "WTF" if ever there was one.....

Study: High dose of Vitamin E increases death risk
By Steve Sternberg, USA TODAY

NEW ORLEANS "High-dose vitamin E supplements taken daily can increase a person's risk of premature death, researchers said Wednesday. People who take daily doses of 400 international units or higher are about 10% more likely to die of a variety of causes than people who take smaller doses or no vitamin E, according to an analysis of 14 studies conducted between 1993 and 2004."

Thank goodness there was a voice of reason at the end of this particular article, which is one of several hyped-up bits of the latest "news" on Vitamin E (where there is no mention about the decades of research, using doses up to 2400 IU)........

"The Council for Responsible Nutrition, a supplement trade group, immediately released a rebuttal. Because many of the studies were done in people who were ill, "the (generality) of the findings to healthy adults is uncertain," said John Hathcock, vice president of scientific and international affairs."

Anything to sell newspapers, eh?
