Excess Vitamin E can be dangerous

New study findings suggest that excess Vitamin E consumption may be linked to increase in risk of early death. The vitamin is found in wheat germ, corn, nuts, seeds, olives, spinach, asparagus and vegetables oils. The current government recommended maximum is 1,500 units of Vitamin E but researchers want this reduced to 400 units. Most dietary supplements contain 400 to 800 units.
