Do you agree with this article's interpretation of this study?

Small study.

How do we know that the effect was not from any one of the three components of the study supplement and neither of the other two?

Edit: article is from 2004. LOL!

The news link does not name the actual article to allow anyone to pull it up and perform a critical review to see if the study design is flawed or not. Maybe this is real, but based on a journalist's interpretation we can only guess.

None of us were involved in the University study and smokers should not do anything to help with dental work needed from the destruction caused by their smoking. Question Everything. They should NOT take any antioxidants to help with their gum destruction. The less they help themselves the more money the dentists will get from them.

Yes antioxidants have beneficial effects. And we know you don't like dentists. Can you summarize what about this article you agree with and don't agree with? Maybe I'm the only one who is confused.

Oops:

Should Anyone Still Take Vitamin E? | Berkeley Wellness

"Lung cancer.

Vitamin supplements, including vitamin E, have not proved protective, according to a 2007 study funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Smokers who took E supplements actually had a slightly higher risk of lung cancer. Though this is not the final word, the researchers warned smokers that the supplements 'may be detrimental.'”
