2008 - Orthomolecular approach in Preventing and Treating Cardio-Vascular Diseases
Cardiovascular diseases CVD are the leading cause of mortality worldwide.Traditional medicine failed so far to find credible solutions to this lethal condition,what is more alarming,is that the number of fatal cases of CVD is on the constant increase.Nearly 15 Million individuals died in 2005 in the world as a result of CVD,representing 29% of total mortality.
The Integrative and Orthomolecular approachs of CVD are including the followings:
