This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

HIGH CAROTENOID SERUM LEVELS INDICATE LOWER RISK OF CORONARY HEART DISEASE in a population of nearly 1,900 males with high cholesterol, according to a study published in the Nov. 9 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. The study, authored by Dexter Morris, PhD/MD, University of North Carolina School of Medicine, et al., examined the relationship between total serum carotenoid levels and the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and found that "participants in the highest quartile of serum carotenoids had a coronary heart disease event rate 60% less than those in the lowest quartile."
