Thanks for an interesting article! :) Report
Excuse me? They died?! Report
I would be professionally embarassed to have my name as a scientist on those studies that found it harmful . . . they were looking at artificial vitamin E which even the dullest bulb, dullest inDUHvidual knows that doesn't fly. I will continue to take only the naturally occurring form of vitamin E, NOT ARTIFICIAL and yes my vitamin E supplement contains all 8 forms. Report
In that study was the vitamin e = early death taken in a fish oil type form? Do you have the name of the studies? Report
Why would anyone take vitamins if they didn't have a need for it - were their levels tested? I always wonder about the health of the participants in these studies. Are any EVER tested for leaky gut?

I got my vitamin E level tested after taking 800iu for a period of time. I was over, so I cut back to 400iu. It's kinda ridiculous to take fat soluble vitamins without knowing your levels. You should not be willy-nilly with fat soluble supplements; but sometimes absolutely more than the RDA is warranted. Consider checking with your health care provider for guidance - someone with a bent on nutrition, not MEDICINE, perhaps. Report

Most Vit E in capsules and in our food and beauty products come from wheat which is bad for people with Celiac Disease or gluten issues. Report

It's best not to take more than the RDA of any of fat-soluable vitamins. (A,D,E,K) Report
The study didn't run very long....about 10 years, if I remember. These people died within ten years of the start of the study? Where they already dying or did the extra E push them along. Report
This article does not make it clear if the deaths were from those who took Vitamin E combined with other supplements or Vitamin E alone. I don't know if that was addressed in the studies, but it wasn't addressed in the article. Report
