The great Canadian medical doctors Wilfrid E. Shute and Evan V. Shute revolutionized cardiology when they first introduced vitamin E megadose therapy. Over several decades, from the 1940's into the late 1970's, the Shutes would successfully treat over 30,000 patients with huge doses of vitamin E.  Today's growing appreciation of the role of d-alpha tocopherol in preventing, and reversing, cardiovascular disease is due  primarily to the Shute brothers, pioneers of orthomolecular medicine.
