Cardiovascular Diseases Kill 10,000 Europeans A Day


Cardiovascular disease is responsible for 40 percent of deaths in Europe, the World Health Organization says, urging Europeans to cut their salt intake.

Hans Kluge, the director of the Europe branch of the World Health Organization, claims that implementing targeted policies to reduce salt intake by 25 percent could save an estimated 900,000 lives from cardiovascular diseases by 2030.

As undesirable as a high salt (sodium) intake is, however, it is not the primary cause of coronary artery disease (the narrowing or blocking of the coronary arteries). Instead, as Dr. Rath discovered in the early 1990s, and scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute subsequently proved, this disease occurs for exactly the same reason that clinical (early) scurvy does – a deficiency of vitamin C in the cells composing the artery wall.

Humans, unlike animals, develop coronary artery disease because their bodies cannot produce vitamin C. The average human diet provides enough vitamin C to prevent scurvy, but not enough to guarantee stable artery walls. As a consequence of vitamin C deficiency, millions of tiny cracks and lesions develop in the artery walls. Subsequently, cholesterol, lipoproteins and other blood risk factors enter the damaged artery walls to repair this damage.

Of all these risk factors, by far the most important is a molecule known as Lipoprotein(a). Primarily found in humans and sub-human primates, Lipoprotein(a) functions as a repair molecule compensating for the structural impairment of the vascular wall. In general, animals that produce vitamin C in their bodies do not produce Lipoprotein(a).

In human beings, in the case of a chronic deficiency of vitamin C, the arterial repair process becomes continuous. Over the course of many years atherosclerotic deposits develop, eventually leading to heart attacks and strokes.
