(NaturalHealth365) The debate over whether vitamin E prevents or promotes cancer has been fabricated by the conventional cancer (business) industry. The truth about the power of vitamin E has yet to be told. If you look carefully – the “scientific” community which promotes doubt (and fear) over natural nutrients is funded by big pharma. (does that surprise anyone?)
The question of whether vitamin E promotes cancer has its roots in some poorly understood facts. For the record, foods that are vitamin rich such as, mustard greens, turnip greens, spinach, collard greens, kale, sunflower seeds and almonds do NOT cause cancer. Remember, whole food nutrition isn’t a fractionated thing – made in a laboratory.
Conventional science wants you uneducated and fearful
The “race for the cure” has deceived cancer patients for too long. We’ve seen – time and again – many dubious studies about cancer treatment and prevention. Yet, real research reveals that individuals who consume lots of fruits and vegetables have much lower rates of all diseases – including cancer.
Here’s something you may NOT have heard in the lame-stream media. The Vitamin E “controversy” is over! The Center for Cancer Prevention Research, at Rutgers Ernest Mario Scholl of Pharmacy, and the Cancer Institute of New Jersey believe that two forms of vitamin E-gamma and delta-tocopherols are effective in preventing colon, lung, breast and prostate cancers.
Shedding light on the power of Vitamin E
The examination of animal studies done at Rutgers – as well as human epidemiological studies – have found a healthy connection between vitamin E and cancer. The animal studies found that tocopherols slowed down the development of tumors, and that the delta-tocopherol form of Vitamin E suppressed colon cancer more than any other type of vitamin E.
Other studies showed eating foods rich in vitamin E such as greens, peppers, and olive oil lowers the risk for bladder cancer by 50% – according to research that has been presented at an annual meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research. Increasing vitamin E intake to the amount consumed to cut the risk of bladder cancer by 50% would mean a single serving daily of spinach or a handful of nuts.
You can kill cancer cells – naturally
Naturally occurring vitamin E exists in eight chemical forms and all have varying levels of biological activity. Research teams investigating the anti-carcinogenic potential of various forms of vitamin E found that gamma-tocopherol in combination with other forms of vitamin E such as delta-tocopherol induced apoptosis (cell suicide) in certain forms of prostate cancer within 3 days of treatment. You think big pharma wants you to know about this?
The advice coming from the researchers such as Dr. Yang who headed up the Rutgers study stated: “For people who think they need to take vitamin E supplements, taking a mixture of vitamin E that resembles what is in our diet would be the most prudent supplement to take.”
More good news: A high intake of vitamin E from food, but not from supplements is known to lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Rush university’s Martha Morris, lead nutritional researcher for the Chicago Health and Aging Project, found a 67% lower risk of Alzheimer’s in subjects with the highest intake of vitamin E from food.
She went on to say: “various tocopherol forms rather than alpha-tocopherol alone may be important in the vitamin E protective association with Alzheimer’s disease. Supplements of vitamin E usually provide only alpha-tocopherol.
It’s time to re-program our minds
Vitamin E isn’t a single substance; it is a family of fat-soluble vitamins that are needed throughout the body, some researchers believe vitamin E is the most important factor in preventing oxidative stress. As we recognize the benefits of whole food nutrition – we must re-evaluate our dependence on outdated ideas of what isolated vitamins can or can’t do. Fresh, organic (non-gmo) foods support cancer-free living!
