1.1 dt limMfamlly Vilamin E: No Miracles By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. Limb ^ What is ill the puttie again* fraudulent (his talk about vitamin E and what it can do in large dose* for certain ailments? Why are there so many books printed saying what good it does? My own doctor doesn't recognize it as being of any importance, Why are such books allowed to be printed if these facts aren't true? if they are true, why doesnt the American Medical Assn. recognise this. If large doses of certain vitamins are recognised as doing great of the Consumer's Report listed things, why don't our doctors suggest we use them? Has this vitamin theory been tried by any of our doctors to prove to the AMA that they are or are not what these books claim them to be? Dear Reader — Scientific journals sponsored by recog- about 80 tilings vitamin E has been falsely claimed to cure, ine group ox oocxors wno wrote a popular book and have a targe practice have been under fire in their, own country because their claims are' unsubstantiated. . . .. . . . - . There must be a streak of ^^^^\varti^ in our public about only print articles that have been reviewed carefully by knowledgeable scientists. Unfortunately, many of the art* news items on radio and TV are not subjected to critical review by scientists, Quacks use the media to promote their products. A case in point is the celebrated quack, Or. John Brinkley. He grafted sections of goat glands into men who were suffering from impotence. He proclaimed the great success of his goat gland transplants to anyone who would listen and published it wherever he could, but not in scientific journals. Actually in such cases the AMA is the con- LOSE WEIGHT OR MONEY BACK Odrlnex can help you become, the trim slim peraon you want Jo be. Odrlnex is a tiny tablet and eaiily iwaUowed.

It is this protection of the public (hat causes quacks to flourish along the borders, because it is illegal for them to carry on their frauds in the United States. There are some benefits from vitamin E. It is not, however, a cure-alL The December Issue the medical profession. There is absolutely no reason for any doctor not to recommend vitamins of any type to a person if cles in the popular press and they are of proved value. What a» UMMH MM MM^I fPtf 1 J Jt_' A purpose would this serve? Doctors do prescribe vitamin E for a few specific medical conditions where it is known to be of vaiiiue. It really would make very little difference to a physician whether he prescribed a vitamin E tablet or some other tablet, if it helped. Not Toxic or Harmful In reasonable doses, vitamin E isn't toxic or harmful. It isn't going to cure all the illnesses that it has been touted to do by some of the unscrupulous marketing mechanisms that exist. These marketing mechanisms literally prey on people's fears, and on individuals who have problems which can't be cured. 1 do believe that there's reason to do extensive research on vitamin E. It may have some functions that have not yet been defined, and I'm all for that. Vitamin E is apparently essential to the body, but the limited amounts usually needed are readily available in many common foods. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Uffsx FLATWALU FINISH.
