In a new book, scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, claim their belief that daily intakes of antioxidant vitamin supplements, both Vitamin C and Vitamin E, "help inactivate free radicals,"​ which are unstable molecules in the body that can damage cells and lead to chronic diseases. "The Complete Home Wellness Handbook"​ was written by Dr. John Edward Swartzberg, Dr. Sheldon Margen, and the editors of the UC Berkeley Wellness Letter. "There have been many studies on C and E, and scientists are only beginning to understand how these and other antioxidants work. The evidence is accumulating bit by bit,"​ the editors said. According to the authors, it is difficult to get the recommended amount of Vitamin E from food, and most foods considered good sources of Vitamin E are high in fat. Numerous studies have demonstrated that natural Vitamin E, made from soybeans, is more effective than the synthetic version of Vitamin E.
