Long-term Vitamin E Use May Reduce The Risk of ALS

vitEA study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology analyzed the data from over one million people from five longitudinal studies and they found dietary Vitamin E reduced amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, causes the degeneration of neurons that control muscle contractions. The researchers found that the longer someone used Vitamin E the lower the rate of ALS.

This research confirms a study reported in the Netherlands which reported that the odds of developing ALS was 50% lower among people in the highest group of Vitamin E intake from food.
