Dietary Antioxidants Do Not Reduce Carotid Atherosclerosis Risk
When I first read this title I was a little surprised. Strangely enough, when I went to the original journal article, the findings show that antioxidants do protect against atherosclerosis, namely dietary Vit E and lycopene. The effect was not great, but these nutrients are only one small part of a program towards good cardiovascular health. The other antioxidants studied (Vit A, C and beta-carotene) did not show an effect. How could a major reporting agency come up with the title shown above when the results are clearly the opposite. The bias here almost sickens me.
