Moreover, Nanthey and Kubler (AJC 45:940, 80) showed that the increase in chromium in patients with metallic prostheses failed to decrease glucose, cholesterol, or triglycéride levels (which are allegedly increased in chromium deficiency). Thus, chromium deficiency as a risk factor for CHD was not supported by this study since blood lipid levels were higher in these patients. However, Mertz (Practical Cardiol 8[9]:145, 82) indicated that chromium supplementation may reduce LDL and total cholesterol levels and increase HDL cholestrol.

Cadmium (which in excess may uncouple o x i d a t i v e p h o s p h o r y l a t i o n ) was increased in p r o p o r t i o n t o t h e number of c i g a r e t t e s smoked and was f e l t t o p o s s i b l y c o n t r i b u t e t o sudden death in smokers.

Most smokers have abnormal pulmonary function tests (Chest 65:148, 74), polycythemia, elevated carboxyhemoglobin, and show a leftward shift in the oxygen-hemoglobin dissociation curve (NEJM 298:6, 78). The increased affinity of hemoglobin for carbon monoxide reduces myocardial oxygen supply, and thus decreases exercise time to angina (AHJ 101:154, 81; Circ 63:253A, 81); at the anginal threshold, the rate-pressure product was decreased and the incidence of ischémie ECG changes and arrhythmias was higher.
