Interesting piece on Radio 4 Science program tonight. I have mentioned before the data suggesting that people closer to the equator have fewer incidence of heart disease than us Northern hemisphere dwellers. This ties in nicely with the Cholesterol Sulphate theory (not to be confused with the simplistic Cholesterol theory your GP rams down your throat). The R4 science program chats to a researcher who has been looking at the seasonal variation that exists with inflamation and seems to be adding a more concrete DNA confirmation to the theory.
