Summary
This book covers two known controversial topics - antioxidants and stem cells as therapies to treat coronary heart disease. Aiming to provide college-educated but not scientifically trained readership with a wealth of information about these two cutting-edge technologies, Antioxidants and Stem Cells for Coronary Heart Disease is written with minimum scientific terminology. Basic science studies and clinical trials regarding stem cells and antioxidants are discussed and peppered with anecdotes to make them understandable and entertaining to the laymen
