Mr FULLER (HUME, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I wish to ask the Minister representing the Minister for Health . and Social Services about a treatment which has been evolved for heart disease.

By way of preface I quote the following extract from the Sunday Sun, of the 14th July:-

Heart Sufferers Clutched at the New Vitamin E Lifeline.

The four Canadian doctors who claim to have discovered a treatment for heart disease which reduces it from a major to a minor killer have been flooded with letters and telephone calls seeking information.

Does the Minister know whether vitamin E has proved as effective in the treatment of heart disease as has been claimed ? If he has no knowledgeof the matter, will he make inquiries about it?

Suggest corrections
