Delete this entry?[edit]

All of the content of this entry are covered within the Vitamin E entry. An argument can be made for separate entries for hypervitaminosis A or D, but not for E. I tried to nominate this article for deletion, but am not familiar with the process. David notMD (talk) 10:23, 17 April 2017 (UTC)


So far, in my research on nutrition and vitamins, I have not found any pubmed article that documents actual hypervitaminosis E. On the other hand, I found a few pubmed articles that actually mention that it is hypothetical and not real-life. I vote for either changing the article to mention that this is either hypothetical, or cite some proper medical publications to prove that it is actually a real world thing, or delete the darn thing altogether.

PS. Just citing a fact sheet is not enough, I (and everyone else here for that matter) need to be able to read the actual pubmed article..and preferably not behind a paywall. Paywalls are evil. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:56, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
