Heart Disease & Antioxidant Failures by Randolph M. Howes, MD, PhD
Heart Disease and Antioxidant Failures is a compilation of over 100 antioxidant studies which have failed to prevent, reverse or cure heart diseases, such as atherosclerosis, plaque formation and hypertension. Of these studies, 30 study reports showed antioxidants having harmful heart adverse effects. People are taking potentially dangerous antioxidants unnecessarily and are wasting their money.
Deceptive antioxidant marketing practices concerning so-called "heart-healthy antioxidants" have been exposed by Dr. Howes.
Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in America and around the globe. Oxygen free radicals have been implicated as being causative of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and of hypertension. The heart normally has an enormous need for di-radical oxygen.
Consequently, investigators have attempted to prevent, reverse or cure heart diseases by the use of antioxidant supplements. Surprisingly, rigorous scientific testing has shown that antioxidants have failed to do so. More shocking is the fact that over 30 study reports have shown that they can cause adverse or harmful cardiovascular effects.
Again, it appears that clever marketing has achieved its goal of increasing profits for ineffective and potentially dangerous antioxidant supplements. Help stop the fraud. Be informed with the scientific truth. Listen to an expert. Heed Dr. Howes' words of wisdom. Do not endanger your heart health needlessly as a response to false advertising.
Be safe! Be smart!
