In the present review we examine the reported relationships between zinc and plasma lipids, haemostasis and other factors postulated to play a role in atherogenesis. Ecological studies that investigated zinc intake or status, and incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD) reveal no consistent pattern. The conflicting observations may be explained by differences in the extent of CHD, site of… CONTINUE READING
