Vitamin E Media Stories Rebuttal

Yet another media storm, this time about Vitamin E – see my post about why these stories are not coincidental – but here is a fab no-holds-barred rebuttal from the renowned Life Extension Foundation. Here is their consumer alert notice and you can read a very detailed referenced rebuttal by following their link at the bottom:

Last week the media vilified vitamin E based on a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The problem is the form of vitamin E used in this negative study is not the same as what serious supplement users take.

Life Extension® was so outraged by the way this study was carried out that we predicted ahead of time in writing that it would fail.

Our forecast came true, as men who supplemented with synthetic alpha tocopherol experienced serious decreases in gamma tocopherol and a 17% increase in prostate cancer incidence.

We long ago warned that taking only synthetic alpha tocopherol would deplete critical gamma tocopherol in the body and increase one’s disease risk.

This is just one reason why this negative study, designed by biased mainstream doctors, was doomed to failure from the outset.

According to a report released this year by the National Institutes of Health, medical expenditures for cancer in the year 2020 are projected to reach $158 billion (in 2010 dollars) — an increase of 27 percent over 20101.

You can believe the medical establishment is salivating over this gargantuan future revenue stream. But there is one potential impediment. If Americans make the proper lifestyle choices and thereby reduce cancer incidence, the establishment’s rosy profit projections go out the window.

The media is serving as a puppet for conventional oncology in frightening Americans away from healthy decisions that could slash cancer risk. To read Life Extension’s rebuttal to this vitamin E study that was designed to fail, click here.
