Every once in a while life brings us those unexpected revelations of truth. Moments that force us to reflect on what we really value and how much of our previously held beliefs are actually true. Can having a discussion about vitamin E bring us to that point? Hell no! .........but we are going to talk about its forgotten side and the SHOCKING ways it's been swept underneath the rug, to the detriment of us all. If you've ever been curious about guzzling pints of Malaysian palm oil and looking for a reason to finally give it a shot.......you're in luck.

To explain the issue further please allow me to bring your attention to Dr. Ulf Risérus, a professor at Uppsala University in Sweden who'll answer important questions for us about this research.
