Minions of laymen are saylng.that vitamin fi can possibly cure (or at least reliOve) sym^oms of such diseases as emphysema. I'd like to know a little about vitamin E, and if it can do all or any of what is claimed. Dear Reader t receive an enormous numbier of letters asking about vitamin fi. This is not surprising in view of the very effective advertising cani* paign used to tout the aupposed benefits of vitamin E. The American Medical Assn. agrees that wie need a small amount of vitamin E. But even if we do not get that in our diet, there is no evidence that there is any disturbance in the body's normal function. This is quite different from most other vitamins which have definite roles in the human body, such as vitamin C. If you don't get enough vitamin C over a long period of time specific changes can be identified, including the development of scurvy, a well- known disease. Same for Others The same can be stated for lack of thiamine and other vitamins. The only, evidence in man of, a need for vitamin C is in certain conditions m premature infants and a few rare medical conditions. At the last national meeting of the American Heart Assn., Dr. Robert E. Olson, one of the nationally prominent investigators, reported that after an evaluation of vitamin t there was no evidence that it was j beneficial in preventing or curing heart disease. Many lucky individuals who do well after recovery from a heart attack wculd have done well whether they took vitamin E or not. Some patients get well in spite of their doctors rather than because of us. A discerning doctor kahis this. An article in the January issue of CoBsomer Reports on vitamin E reports 60 ailments, including emphysema, which are mistakenly touted as havhig been prevented, or treated by vitamin E. In short, many of the things that vitamin E is touted to cure 6r prevent are not benefited. How then do you account for the number of people who claim to have benefits from vitamin E? This is shnpie. Doctors have krown for years that they can give placebos, sUch as sugar pills and pink Water, to their patients and a number of them will feel markedly better. Many quack cures depend upon this response, which is really .based on the person's faith in his medicme. Mind's .Influence The mind has a curious and powerful influence on how the body responds and how we feel. For this reason competent scientists investigate new treat ments, a pill or even a surgical procedure, by carefully designed research methods and statistical analysis. Such methods are planned to eliminate chance, faith healmg and coincidence. The doctor's enthusiasm also has an effect on how the patient feels; Individuals who have responded well to treatment, even if it is pink water, are sold on the treatment and their doctor. Modern scientiffc experimental methods help to., prevent both the doctor and the patient from being deceived. I know these remarks about vitamin E will not set well with many people, but facts are facts and scientific investigations of vitamin E have proved that most of the claims that have been made for it have littl^ or ho basis.
