A new study in the New England Journal of Medicine based on a 3-year observation of over 700 people, found minimal effects on the rate of adopting Mild Cognitive Impairment, the precursor to Alzheimer's - that can start as early as the 30's.

The double-blind study, meaning half of the participants were given a placebo, showed insignificant differences between the placebo and Vitamin E. More research will certainly follow. Of course, Vitamin E has impact on more physical systems than cognition, where it may be beneficial.
