An editorial update: Annus horribilis for vitamin E

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

36 Scopus citations


In-January 2005, we published a dose-response meta-analysis showing that high-dosage (≥400 IU/d) vitamin E supplementation was associated with a small but statistically significant increased risk for death. These findings were highly controversial: This issue of Annals includes 11 of more than 40 electronic rapid-response letters about our article. Rather than summarizing this exchange of views, however, this editorial reports further developments in the vitamin E story.
