The research, undertaken by Marcus Shürks, a researcher at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, looked at nine international trials that included more than 118,000 study participants.
A total of 59,357 participants took vitamin E supplements, while the rest took a placebo.
Based on their findings, the researchers estimated that there could be one additional haemorrhagic stroke for every 1,250 people taking vitamin E.
One ischaemic stroke, on the other hand, could be prevented per every 476 people taking vitamin E.
