| ||What Doctors Don't Tell You: Vitamin E is my elixir of youth||
I have taken vitamin E supplements every day for about 30 years, mainly for my varicose veins - and I look 20 years younger than I am. When I had meningococcal septicaemia, I was not expected to survive. I was told that I had very serious blood poisoning and had a sample taken every other day. I am sure it was the vitamin E in my system that saved me. I was 70 years of age then. I am 77 now, but look 57 - no wrinkles or grey hairs. I am a natural blonde with healthy shiny hair and very good skin. I think vitamin E has kept me young and healthy as I have nothing wrong with me except osteoarthritis. I have had both knees replaced, and I now have no more pains or aches in my body, but I try not to take any drugs as I am allergic to most of them. So, I depend on many supplements, which I take regularly. - Geraldine Roe, Tunbridge Wells, Kent
