Abstract

BUIJSSE and colleagues, Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu (RIVM), Centrum voor Voeding an Gezingheid, Postbus 1, 3720 BA Bilthoven, brian.buijsse@rivm.nl, have reviewed (44 references) the association between intake of vitamin E and the risk of coronary heart disease. Abstract: Vitamin E is possibly involved in the prevention of coronary heart disease by inhibiting oxidative damage to LDL cholesterol. The results of studies on the association between vitamin E intake and coronary heart disease are inconsistent in observational studies and absent in large-scale intervention studies. This may be because of imperfections in these studies. Alternatively, vitamin E may only be an effective protective agent in the presence of co-antioxidants. At present there is no evidence that vitamin E alone lowers the risk of coronary heart disease.
