    CORONARY ARTERY STENTS

    Coronary artery stents do not reduce the risk of death over 4 years (8.9% vs 9.1%)

    Coronary stents do not reduce the risk of dying according to a meta-analysis of eight (8) studies which included a total of 7229 patients with an average follow-up of 4.3 years.

    The death rate was 8.9% over the next 4.3 years in people who had a stent placed versus 9.1% in those who had standard medical therapy.

    “Initial stent implantation for stable [coronary artery disease] shows no evidence of benefit compared with initial medical therapy for prevention of death, nonfatal [heart attack], unplanned revascularization, or angina,” the authors of the paper concluded.

    CHOCOLATE

    Eating chocolate 2X per week associated with 66% lower risk of cardiac death over 8 years

    People who had a heart attack who ate chocolate twice or more per week were 66% less likely to have died from heart-related problems over the 8 years following their heart attack compared to people who never ate chocolate according to the Stockholm Heart Epidemiology Program.

    People who ate chocolate up to once a week were 44% less likely to have died from heart-related problems over the 8 years following their heart attack compared to people who never ate chocolate.

    People who ate chocolate less than once a month were 27% less likely to have died from heart-related problems over the 8 years following their heart attack compared to people who never ate chocolate.

    Chocolate consumption had a strong inverse association with cardiac mortality,” the authors of the study concluded.

    Niacin lowers Lp(a) by an average of 28%

    Extended-release niacin (1500 to 2000 mg per day) lowers levels of Lp(a) by an average of 28% in people starting with higher levels of Lp(a)—starting levels of 92 mg/dL versus 54 mg/dL—according to a study from Russia.

    Elevated levels of Lp(a) (above 50 mg/dL) are associated with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke according to the Lipoprotein a Foundation.

    Note: I prefer immediate-release niacin to extended-release niacin. In the 1980’s there were reports of some liver problems with extended-release niacin, and earlier studies showing benefits of niacin used immediate-release niacin, not extended-release.

    EDTA CHELATION

    EDTA chelation reduced risk of death, heart attack 18% over 5 years in those with prior heart attack

    People who had a prior heart attack who were given 40 infusions of EDTA chelation therapy compared to those given a placebo were 18% less likely to die from any cause, have a heart attack, have a stroke, have coronary revascularization, or hospitalization for angina over the next 5 years.

    A subset of people who were Type 2 diabetics had a 41% lower risk of these events happening.

    EDTA chelation helps to remove heavy metals such as lead and cadmium.

    “[A] body of epidemiological data showing that accumulation of biologically active metals, such as lead and cadmium, is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease,” the authors of the paper note.

    VITAMIN C & STROKE

    Low serum vitamin C levels associated with 2.1 times greater risk of stroke in men

    The one-fourth of men with the lowest plasma vitamin C levels were 2.1 times more likely to have a stroke during a 10.4 year follow-up compared to the one-fourth of men with the highest vitamin C levels according to a study from Finland which followed 2419 middle-aged men, 42- to 60-years-old, with no history of stroke at baseline.

    This was after adjusting for body mass index, systolic blood pressure, smoking, alcohol consumption, serum total cholesterol, diabetes, and exercise-induced myocardial ischemia.

    Low vitamin C in hypertensive men and overweight men and risk of stroke: 2.4X greater risk and 2.7X greater risk

    Comparing the one-fourth of men with the lowest serum vitamin C levels versus the one-fourth with the highest levels, the risk of stroke was 2.4 times higher in hypertensive men and 2.7 times higher in overweight men.
