YOUR KEY TO A HEALTHY HEART

Herbert Bailey, it will be remembered, was one of the strident sponsors of rebiozen (A Matter of life or Death-1958). Now, after a heart attack which he underwent seven years ago and which he overcame after three days of Vitamin E therapy, abandoning his digitalis and nitroglycerine tablets, he is making an equally aggressive case for Vitamin E. This, particularly in view of the fact that it has faced a medical block in general and a rebuff from the FDA in 1960 (""wild claims""). Mr. Bailey has amassed considerable documentation on the pioneer work of a Canadian Dr. Shute and the efficacy of Vitamin E not only in cardiovascular diseases, but in many others (from diabetes to Mongolism). He also cites the research evidence of other doctors all over the world. And there is a 100-page appendix with further claims of ""suppression"" as practiced by the AMA, etc. Herbert Bailey suggests that if you have a heart condition, you prescribe this therapy to your doctor and show him this book. If he does not go along with it, change doctors. We suggest waiting for scientific approval in spite of the sluggish conservatism of organized medicine.
