"B Vitamins No Help in Stopping Heart Attacks - Study"
 
"Giving B vitamins to heart attack survivors does not cut their risk of having another attack and may actually do more harm than good, researchers said on Monday."

This certainly gives pause for thought.  I've been on Folic Acid per my Dr.'s orders via prescription for over 7 years!  I realize this is a 'study', and they absolutely should look at this more closely, but it's making me wonder? 
 
How about you?  confused Are you currently taking Folic Acid?

This stuff makes my head swim sometimes. One minute it's good for you and then the next it's not. ARghhhhhh. But we need to be informed, at the same time. I do hope they continue to do more studies about the B Vitamins. Thank you for posting this article.
Happy Grandmommy to Amanda, Alayna, Wyatt and Ezekiel

Hi everyone, had a little time so I thought I'd stop in. It's great to see the forum growing and having such interesting topics. I found this topic really interesting because I just had to have 3 of my previous stents re-opened and a new one put in. Scar tissue! Anyway, fine now but because of this information I found I started to take B-vitamins. Like you said, now it's good tomorrow who knows? Everyone take good care of yourselves and I'll try to get back soon.

ARTERY NARROWING STOPPED BY B VITAMIN COMBINATION 2
New England Journal of Medicine. 2004;350(26):2708-10.
A regimen of folate, vitamin B-12 and vitamin B-6 prevented recurrence of blocked arteries in patients who had undergone coronary angioplasty. Patients taking the vitamin combination over the six-month study showed a 48% reduction in the development of restenosis, or renarrowing of the arteries, compared with patients receiving the placebo. The vitamin regimen decreased by 38% the need for repeat angioplasties or heart-bypass operations. Participants were randomly assigned to receive 1 mg folate, 400 mcg vitamin B12 and 10 mg B6 daily.
