Recent formulation change to synthetic Vit E (cancer causing per 3rd pty studies)
on August 10, 2013
In the past 6 months or more, the Natures Way Alive! brand formulation has changed for ALL their supplement products containing the former Vitamin E/d-tocopherol to the synthetic, (i.e. scientifically-proven to cause cancer) Vitamin E/dl-tocopherols. People intaking Vit E in that synthetic form have had a 30% spike in cancer per 3rd party studies! That "l" indicates it is synthetic. The labels for these products selling online have not been updated anywhere or, only depict the front without the vitamin breakout line by line. The product now has "dl-tocopherols" so the boxes product descriptions SHOULD show the dl-tocopherol is among the ingredients.
By law, only 10% of the product needs to be 'natural' to be able to claim 'natural'...I will be changing to another brand and I'm not happy about that. Bring back the old formulation with SAFE ingredients please!
