In een Finse studie uit 1997 bleek: van mannen met VITAMINE C gebrek kreeg 14,2 % een hartaanval, bij de mannen zonder C gebrek was dat 3,8 %.
A study, [i]Vitamin C Deficiency and Risk of Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)[/i] was published in the March 1997 issue of the [i]British Medical Journal. [/i]
The Aceology Medical Review states this conclusion:
This study looked at the association between blood vitamin C concentration and risk of heart attack in 1605 men from eastern Finland who did not have evidence of coronary artery disease on exercise testing between 1984 and 1989.
Seventy of the men had a fatal or a non-fatal heart attack between 1984 and 1992. Among men with the vitamin C deficiency 13.2% had a heart attack compared to 3.8% in those who were not deficient in Vitamin C.
This study concludes that vitamin C deficiency may be a risk factor for coronary artery disease and heart attack.
