Recent studies have addressed this issue, as is discussed below. In heart disease the heart has some type of abnormality. The multiple risk factor intervention trial. France ranked last for heart disease deaths amongst Eurozone in 1998. They then feed the tube up to the faulty valve in your heart. Tziakas and associates (2009) evaulated the effect of statin therapy on CEM levels (a novel marker of CAD instability) during a 1-year follow-up in CAD patients. Every 60 seconds, someone in the United States dies from a heart disease-related event.
