New Heart Prescription: B Vitamins

Homocysteine, clogged arteries
Why do some people die from heart attacks when their blood cholesterol is normal? They’ve never smoked a cigarette, are thin a rail, exercise regularly, take vitamins E and C and don’t suffer from diabetes, hypertension or other cardiac risk factors. Evidence is mounting that the culprit may be increased amounts of homocysteine in the blood. Ah, what sweet revenge for Dr. Kilmer McCully.
In 1968 Dr. Kilmer McCully was a pathologist at Harvard’s prestigious Massachusetts General Hospital. He was performing an autopsy on a two month old boy who had died of a rare genetic disease, “homocystinuria”.
