While epidemiological cohort studies show associations, they cannot prove causal relations. To proof the hypothesis that a nutrient is associated with a disease, randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are needed that can show a clear dose–response effect. The general hypothesis underlying the concept of RCTs is that large amounts of a certain vitamin or a certain vitamin combination will result in lower risk of a certain disease. Examples for these studies are the numerous trials that have been conducted using folic acid, vitamin B6 and B12 for the prevention of cardiovascular disease, folic acid for the prevention of cancer, and folic acid, vitamin B6 and B12 for the prevention of cognitive decline and dementia.

7 Vitamin B6 In 1934, Gyo¨rgy found that there is a specific type of skin lesions in rat which was protected by an unidentified ‘vitamin B6’. In 1938, Samuel Lepkovsky reported its crystallization. Slightly later, four other groups, Keresztesy and Stevens, Gyo¨rgy, Kuhn and Wendt, and Ichiba and Michi, independently announced the crystallization of vitamin B6 from various sources (summarized in Gyo¨rgy 1964; Gyo¨rgy admits Lepkovsky, Keresztesy and he were in contact with each other just before publication).
