    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.

     

    This is an update from the same research group to an article published previously.
