of illnesses and death linked to vaping have been all over the news. Although
the exact cause of the lung illness is not known, the FDA is investigating
the presence of vitamin E in many vaping products as a possible culprit. This
may cause consumers to be concerned, more generally, about the safety of
vitamin E, so it is important to do what many media outlets are not and get the
facts straight: the “vitamin E” being referred to in the FDA’s investigation
is not natural vitamin E, but a synthetic compound possessing none of the antioxidant properties of real
vitamin E. It is crucial that regulators, the media, and the public, not
mix this up.
Write to the New York Times and The Washington Post, telling them to get the facts right about vitamin E.
Set the record straight on vitamin E
