    A large new study advances our understanding of vitamin E and ties increasing consumption of supposedly healthy, vitamin E-rich oils -- canola, soybean and corn -- to the rising incidence of lung inflammation and, possibly, asthma. The good news: vitamin E in olive and sunflower oils improves lungs. The study shows drastically different health effects of vitamin E depending on its form: gamma-tocopherol in soybean, canola and corn oil and alpha-tocopherol in olive and sunflower oils.

    Hm... I thought haidut also uses vitamin E high in gamma-tocopherol in his products... ?

    That seems the best form to take.

    For the study they didn't supplement vitamin E, correct, but was influenced by which oils people consume?

    Surely the other components of the oils didn't have effects...

    When they write "a large new study" they give the impression something significant has been done, but it's nothing more than establishing a correlation between forms of vitamin E and some health makers in people with awful diets. What's the need for a science publication to so blatantly and needlessly mislead its readers? It's like a gossipy tabloid selectively highlighting and exaggerating to catch attention.

    Most studies are indeed flawed, but that's what most studies are. It's A fact we have to deal with. Sure that there are other substances involved, and what if people have little inflammation and eat almost no PUFAs and ...? Studies are not for conclusions. They based their observations on blood concentrations however.

    Although most studies aren't for straight conclusion, the next might be something to take into consideration..

    I don't think science magazines selectively highlighting and exaggerating like a gossipy tabloid are immutable necessities of life.

    It's not the science magazines, it's the overall studies that may be done with best intentions but are no comparative to reality. Science magazines just have to deal what's being produced by researchers. Most reviewers by the way are quite controversial people and most only tend to believe what they have been thaught. In the end these people and people behind sciences magazines are just people like you and me.

    What science is actually trying to reveal the truth or bring us complete understanding? It is very little.. Wrote something about this earlier, it's just the way things are and probably the only way to learn what is right and not right.

    Maybe it's a LITTLE BIT of gamma which is natural.

    I personally tend to feel pretty good megadosing... Your vitamin E needs are influenced by your PUFA intake and PUFA stored.

    I mean a little bit of gamma with mostly alpha. I think Progest-E is like that.

    I think whether you want higher gamma or alpha depends on the condition. For prostate health, for example, gamma tocopherol seems more important.

    It's one body to me, I'm not gonna split in half to take different supplements. Evolution doesn't work like that.

    So you eat the same foods and medicines when you're sick or healthy?

    Yes, there is no difference. And if I got "sick" I would seriously reconsider my "healthy" food.
