Prospective Study of Pathogen Burden and Risk of MI or Death
A very interesting study that continues to add support to the contribution of an infectious etiology to heart disease. Although this study does not show a link between C. pneumoniae and heart disease, other viruses did prove to be an independent risk factor. As I’ve said; this just further supports the idea of taking good care of yourself, which will inevitably support healthy immune system function and lower the number of circulating pathogens.
