    YOUR HEALTH: E's your ticket to fight disease


    Provided by Myrtle Beach Sun News on 9/19/2004



    Does your diet include enough vitamin E? If it doesn't, may be it's time to make a change in your eating pattern.

    Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant that protects our cells from damage caused by substances called free radicals.

    Damage caused to the body by free radicals can possibly lead to diseases such as cancer.

    Good sources of vitamin E include safflower and corn oils, wheat germ, sunflower seeds and nuts. The recommended dietary allowance for the alpha-tocopheral form (a potent form obtained from germ oils or by synthesis) of vitamin E is 15 milligrams.

    Adults typically take in eight to 12 milligrams of vitamin E daily.

    Vitamin E helps keep the body healthy and can ward off these serious diseases:

    Cancer: Research has found that regular consumption of vitamin E may lower rates of prostate, breast, colon and cervical cancer.

    Heart disease: Vitamin E may help prevent or delay heart disease by targeting the free radicals that mix with the "bad" (LDL, or low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol.

    Alzheimer's disease: Studies show that vitamin E may slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease.

    Diabetes: Although vitamin E can't prevent diabetes, it may help reduce health problems related to diabetes by attacking an abnormally high amount of free radicals in the blood.

    Vitamin E also has been found to boost the immune system, help delay the onset of cataracts in the eyes, lower the risk of asthma by reducing swelling in the respiratory tract and supplement hormone-replacement therapy for women with menopause.
