Neil has contributed to a new textbook on vitamin E

Neil contributed Chapter Two of the technical book "Tocotrienols: Vitamin E Beyond Tocopherols" by the American Oil Chemists Society (AOCS), with help from a colleague to format my lecture notes into a book chapter format. That chapter is titled, "Tocotrienols in Vitamin E: Hype or Science?" 2008. Hardbound. 423 Pages. $155 SRP CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group "This volume goes far beyond the usual considerations of vitamin E to focus on tocotrienols, which, along with tocopherols constitute the bioactive ingredients of vitamin E. Recognized as potent antioxidants, tocotrienols are associated with cholesterol reduction, tumor suppression, and protecting the heart against oxidative stress. Compiling contributions from leading researchers, this book builds upon a recent symposium sponsored by the AOCS. It examines sources, discusses isolation, and delves into the biochemistry and chemistry of tocotrienols. The book then takes a comprehensive look at their role in health and disease, with a special focus on heart disease." ISBN: 978-1-420080-37-7 https://www.aocs.org/catalog/product.asp?ID=w225&dept=10
