abstract

  • The association between W and CVD incidence and mortality was positive although non-significant at lower urinary Mo levels and significant and inverse at higher urinary Mo levels. Although prior cross-sectional epidemiologic studies in the general US population found positive associations between urinary tungsten and prevalent cardiovascular disease, our prospective analysis in the Strong Heart Study indicates this association may be modified by molybdenum exposure.
