 Vitamin E is healthy for all
According to a new research, vitamin E in nuts and leafy greens reduces the risk of both dementia and sudden heart attacks. Three new studies prove theuseful effects and the health benefits of nuts. The first followed over 600 residents in Texas, and finds that those with the highest vitamin E intake had a 40 per cent lower risk of dementia compared to those with the lowest intakes.

In the second study, over 3,000 people in the Netherlands were followed for six years and, again, high intakes of vitamins C and E were linked with reduced dementia risk. And finally a paper from this week's Archives of Internal Medicine shows that men who ate at least one ounce of nuts a week were less likely to suffer a sudden heart attack. Almonds are an excellent source of vitamin E, say the researchers. They contain more of the vitamin E that the body absorbs that many other foods. Eat them raw, or try them in classic dishes like trout and almonds.
