- ... The role of arsenic in carcinogenesis is controversial. There is no doubt arsenic can influence carcinogenesis under certain conditions. However, a review of the findings relating arsenic to cancer indicates that arsenic mainly affects carcinogenesis indirectly by influencing other metabolic systems (i.e., immune system) or nutrients (i.e., arginine, zinc) that may have a more direct role in the c ...

- ... Absolute or relative deficiency of copper is hypothesized to be of prime importance in the etiology of ischemic heart disease. According to recent estimates, only 25% of the diets in the United States contain the 2 mg of copper thought to be required daily by adults. Some of these diets have ratios of zinc to copper greater than those that have produced hypercholesteremia in animals. There are man ...
