London: Researchers have found that a combination of two over-the-counter drugs could help fight heart disease and reduce deaths by half.The study revealed that not only did the 1.10 pounds-a-day tablets reduce the risk of elderly patients dying, they were also found to help the heart to work more efficiently.The findings can have major implications for Britain where heart disease affects around 2.6 million people and kills about 94,000 each year.Over six million people are prescribed powerful drugs like statins to reduce artery-clogging “bad” LDL cholesterol.This slashed their risk of stroke and heart attack, which is the leading cause of deaths from heart disease.But a natural mineral, which has already been linked to a host of health benefits, can also be a potent new treatment.
