I have a question on Vitamin E. My husband and I have been taking
Vit. E, 400 units, for years. Today, my husband returned from his Dr's
visit to say that the Dr. says that new reports out show that Vit. E
can CAUSE heart problems. We have never heard this before and,
naturally, are concerned and want to know if anyone else has heard
or read anything like this. This Dr. is very reputable, to the point that
we do not doubt him, but we just have not heard of this up till now.
Could someone comment on this, if you have heard this info? Thanks!
Appreciate the reply, however, that is true to a certain extent. No matter
how well a person eats, and we eat very healthy, one still feels the need
for supplements for one reason or another. I agree, too much in quantity,
is not good, but regularly through the years is not a problem. I was
just wondering if anyone had seen a recent report out on this subject of
Vit. E, that we had missed. I know, too, that a lot of people cannot tolerate
Vit. E. We have had no problem with that. Thanks
Vitamin E causes heart problems? That's total nonsense. Wilfred and Evan Shute, who established the Shute Institute in Canada, first pioneered the use of high dosages of vitamin E in treating patients with heart disease back in the 1940s. Over the course of several decades, the Shute Institute has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients from all over the world using dosages as high as 3200 IU. So, I don't know where this negative information about vitamin E is coming from. I know there is a tabloid newspaper called the National Enquirer. Maybe doctors have there own such newspaper, and it's called the Medical Enquirer.
I tend to agree with you. Natural vitamin E is by far the way to go. That's what the Shute Institute uses. In fact, it's even more advantageous to use a vitamin E supplement that includes the entire vitamin E complex, which includes both all of the tocopherols and the tocotrienols.
I also completely agree with you. You are absolutely right.
PS630, I so do not agree with you. My mother's a family doctor. She's way underpaid, for the work she does. This is why fewer people in this country become family doctors, too hard work, too little money. Anyway, her patients have to pay an annual amount of money to her or something. I don't know exactly. It's just that she gets an amount of money which relies on the quantity of patients she gets. And everybody needs a family doctor. No matter how healthy they are. So the ones who are sick every day and visit the doctor every other day, pay just as much money as those who are sick ones a year.
Also. She became a doctor to help people, not for the money. As most doctors here, since the money is nothing. So their main goal is helping people with their profession. Making them ill will only have to make them work harder for the same amount of money by the way, and get sued, lose their jobs, etc. etc. etc.
So ********, the stuff you say. How can you agree with this?
SOME (but very few!!! and the dumb ones) doctors might be this way. But definitely not all!! And you seem to forget doctors are people as well.
Thanks to all, for your replies on Vitamin E. We, totally, believe in
Vitamin E and have for years. This Doctor is one of the best but think
that some cases one has to go with what they think is right. I,
particularly, have a difficult time staying on any medication. In
many cases, if I feel any different, for the worse, after beginning
a medication, I take myself off. Know doctor's don't appreciate
that. So, we will continue the Vitamin E. We take 400 IU's a
day and have for years. Know that some Vit. E is better than
