9780060984434: The Vitamin E Factor: The Miraculous Antioxidant for the Prevention and Treatment of Heart Disease, Cancer, and Aging

It is too early to conclude that vitamin E has all the beneficial effects attributed to it, but even if only 25% of current expectations were to be fulfilled, vitamin E would become an important weapon against a range of chronic diseases.

The book is not simply scientific and education but also a please to read.Dimitrios Trichopoulos, MDVincent L. Gregory Professor of Cancer Prevention and Professor of Epidemiology, Harvard School of Public Health

Review:

Research supports the contention that vitamin E appears to help prevent heart disease, boost the immune system, slow down Alzheimer's disease, decrease the risk of prostate cancer, keep HIV from developing into full-blown AIDS, and enhance male fertility--and this is just the beginning of the list of benefits, says author Andreas M. Papas. But it isn't enough to pop a multivitamin pill. You need to understand what form of the nutrient is best for you, and how much. Vitamin E is really eight different compounds. Synthetic supplements contain only one (alpha-tocopherol), while the whole "family" is important and can be found only in some natural supplements. The Vitamin E Factor decodes all this and shows you how to develop a personalized strategy for getting the most from this nutrient. This book contains everything you could want to know about this "master antioxidant" and "super nutrient" and a few items you didn't know you wanted to know--its discovery, the origin of the name alpha-tocopherol, anecdotes from its history, and elephant research, for example. If you're a chemistry buff, special sections explain and illustrate the science of vitamin E. If you just want the basics, some of the book will be more technical than you want, but each chapter has helpful "straight talk" and/or "recommendations" that summarize the major points clearly. --Joan Price

From the Publisher:

Jean Carper, USA WEEKEND columnist and author WROTE A SPECIAL INTRODUCTION FOR THE BOOK. She described it as 'a gem of a book, packed with fascinating facts and advice on how to use vitamin E to save your life and improve your health..., the best book on a major vitamin anywhere...'

Other renown international authorities praised the book as not simply scientific and educational but also a pleasure to read.
