Compared to the mice that had normal amounts of vitamin E in their diet, the mice fed extra vitamin E had:
• 1,000 times fewer bacteria in their lungs
• Two times fewer the number of white blood cells (neutrophils)
The reduced numbers of bacteria and white blood cells resulted in less lung damage in the older mice who received extra vitamin E. These mice were able to control the infection as efficiently as young mice.
