Incredulity: unwilling or unable to believe something.
Saying the results of their study are “implausible” and should be “viewed with appropriate skepticism,” researchers are in frank denial over a study which shows a so-called “high-dose” multivitamin formula drastically reduces mortality rates among post-heart attack patients, a beneficial effect that was completely negated by concomitant use of statin cholesterol-lowering drugs.
The study, published in the American Heart Journal, was conducted among adults who had experienced a prior heart attack and had undergone intravenous chelation therapy. Vitamin and mineral replacement is customarily prescribed after chelation therapy.
A six-tablets-a-day amped-up multivitamin regimen produced a 38% reduction in risk for death or other mortal cardiovascular events like stroke. Unexpectedly, this beneficial effect was completely abolished by simultaneous use of statin drugs + multivitamin.

An even more demonstrable reduction in non-mortal cardiovascular events (heart attack, stroke) was tabulated (54% risk reduction) when the high-dose multivitamin was compared against inactive placebo use.
A prior study that employed so-called “high-dose” vitamins and minerals among post-heart attack patients only showed a modest “non-significant” reduction in the risk for death, recurrent heart attack, stroke or re-hospitalization of 3% (27% for multivitamin group, 30% for placebo group), 11% relative risk reduction).
The study is contrary to an earlier report that concluded dietary supplements do not produce clear evidence of a beneficial effect on all-cause mortality or…
