Controversy over Vit. E and Selenium for Prostate Cancer prevention

December 15th, 2011

Dr. Ingrid Pinchot has published a wonderful article summarizing how Vitamin E (as gamma-tocopherol) can be protective against prostate cancer.  She also goes on to report the flaws of the recent study which denies the benefits of selenium and Vitamin E (for example, the research used synthetic alpha-tocopherol despite research which had previously shown significant protective benefits of  gamma-tocopherol, and the “results” included analyzing participants who had been off the supplements for up to 3 years!).  The article may be read by clicking here.
