Pedicures and Heart Disease

A study in the American Journal of Epidemiology in June 2005 (162(2):157-16found that low chromium levels are associated with an increase risk for myocardial infarction. The researchers actually measured chromium in toenail clippings because they found that it better assessed long term chromium intake over a blood test. Findings indicate that among 1,400 men, those who suffered a heart attack had chromium levels about 15% lower than those who did not. In addition, those with higher levels of chromium had fewer heart attacks.
