Do not loose your heart

Diabetics need not lose sleep over their vulnerability to cardiovascular diseases. The new discovery that vitamin C infusions into the blood- stream avert cardiovascular complications will certainly allay their fears.

Certain chemical signals discharged by a diabetic result in blood vessels loosing their ability to constrict and dilate; which causes heart problems. But Henry H Ting and his colleagues at Brigham Women's Hospital in Boston, US, have discovered that when liquid vitamin C is introduced into the blood stream, it increases the flexibility of blood vessels, thereby preventing the damage to patients' heart vessels.
