Homogenized milk and coronary artery disease: theory, not fact

Homogenized milk and coronary artery disease: theory, not fact

Journal of the American Medical Association 234(6): 630-631

This editorial refutes the hypothesis that xanthine oxidase is absorbed from homogenized cow's milk, deposited in the myocardium and becomes associated with the breakdown of membrane plasmalogens and depletion of tissue fatty aldehydes, causing myocardial damage. The evidence upon which the hypothesis is based is reviewed and considered insufficient.
