Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, July 12, 1973 LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Vitamin E: no miracles Your horoscope By JIANE DIXON Dear Dr. Lamb What is all this talk about vitamin E and what it can do in large doses for certain ailments? Why are there so many books print- ed saying -what good it does? My own doctor doesn't recog- nize it as being of any impor- tance. Why are such books al lowed to be printed if these facts aren't true? If they are true, why doesn't the American Medical Assn. recognize this. If large doses of certain vita- mins are recognized as doing great things, why don't our doc- tors suggest we use them? Has this vitamin theory been tried by any of our doctors to prove to the AMA that they are or are not what these books claim them to be? Dear Header Scientific journals sponsored by recogniz- ed medical organizations only print articles that have been reviewed carefully by knowled- geable scientists. Unfortunate- ly, many of the articles in the popular press and new items on radio and TV are not sub- jected to critical review by scientists. Quacks use tha media to pro- mote then: products. A case in point is the celebrated quack, Dr. John Brinkley. He grafted sections of goat glands into men suffering from im- potence. He proclaimed the great success of his goat gland Fun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER Each letter stands for a dif- ferent digit. These were all of a type, so you have truly odd MURDERS here. HOLMES SOLVED MOOD MURDERS Thanks for an idea to D. Murdoch, Toronto, Ontario. (Answer tomorrow) Yesterday's answer: Weights 5V4 and 3% pounds. transplants to anyone would listen and published it wherever he could, but not in scientific journals. Actually in such cases the AMA is the con- sumers' advocate, protecting the public against fraudulent medical practices. Through such organized efforts, Dr. Brinkley was finally run out of the United States. It is this pro- tection of the public that causes quacks to flourish along the borders, because it is illegal for them to carry on their frauds in the United States. There are some benefits from vitamin E. It is not how- ever, a cure-all. The December issue of the U.S. Consumer's Report listed about 60 things vitamin E has been falsely claimed to cure. One group of doctors who wrote a popular book and have a large practice have been under fire in their own country because their claims are unsubstantiated. There must be a streak of paranoia in our public about the medical profession. There is absolutely no reason for any doctor not to recommend vi- tamins of any type to a per- son if they are of proved value. What purpose would his serve? Doctors do prescribe vitamin E for a few specific medical conditions where is known to be of value. It really would make very little difference to a physician whether he prescrib- ed a vitamin E tablet or some other tablet, if it helped. In rea- sonable doses, vitamin E isn't toxic or harmful. It isn't going to cure all the illnesses that it has been touted to do by some of the unscrupulous marketing mechanisms that exist. These marketing mechanisms literal- ly prey on people's fears, and on individuals who have prob- lems which can't be cured. I do believe that there's reason to do extensive research on vi- tamin E. It may have some functions that have not yet been defined, and I'm all for that. Vitamin E is apparently essen- tial to the body, but the limited amounts usually needed are readily available in many com- mon foods. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this news- paper.
