Abstract

A large body of evidence supports the notion that oxidation of lipids and lipoproteins may contribute to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Furthermore, data from multiple studies help strengthen the hypothesis that dietary antioxidants may inhibit development of atherosclerosis. Despite the available data, both hypotheses remain unproven. Thus, physicians need to maintain a conservative approach in their clinical practice until these hypotheses are substantiated by more conclusive data.
