Homocysteine levels linked to cardiovascular risk:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Increasing blood plasma levels of total homocysteine are associated with cardiovascular risk factors, including male sex, old age, smoking, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol level and lack of exercise. A team from the University of Bergen, Haukeland University Hospital and the National Health Screening Service (Norway) uncovered the relationship through a survey of 8,449 individuals in the Norwegian Health Screening Service's health examination survey. They say their findings "should influence future studies on the aetiology and pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease" (JAMA, November 15th Volume 274, No 19).
