Combined Vit E and C Use and Risk of CVD Mortality
This is a letter of reply to an article published in the Archives of Internal Medicine that compared Vit C, E and a combination of the two on CVD mortality and proudly announced in the conclusion that there was no benefit and there may actually be an increased risk. The nice thing about editorials are that they are generally written by clinicians and researchers entrenched in that particular topic, and the authors of the original article are invited to reply and support/rebut the letter. It really gives additional insight into an article and it’s nuances and details. This letter actually points out that Vit C and E seemed to have a pretty strong protective effect against the development of CVD. This study was done on patients with already existing CVD.
