news that vitamin C might increase the risk of heart disease
Many people are wondering what to make of the news that vitamin C might increase the risk of heart disease.
This all started from a presentation at a recent American Heart Association meeting. This new research suggests that people who take 500 mg/day of vitamin C for over a year have a higher risk of atherosclerosis.
This is a surprise. Earlier research suggested that vitamin C might actually prevent atherosclerosis and improve blood flow.
