The researchers found that, overall, statin treatment reduced the risk of a major vascular event by about a quarter for each millimole per litre reduction in LDL cholesterol, even in older people.
Results were expressed in millimole (mM) ascorbic acid equivalent (AAE) per 1 g of a sample on a dry weight basis.
This transformation takes at least two years and after processing provides 80-95% carbon-14 enriched barium carbonate ([Ba.sup.14]C[O.sub.3]) with a specific activity of 50-60 millicuries per millimole.
We report urinary fluoride in units of micromoles per litre ([micro]mol/L), creatinine-adjusted urinary fluoride in units of micromoles per millimole ([micro]mol/mmol), and fluoride concentration in tap water in units of milligrams per litre (mg/L) to be consistent with how these variables are presented in Statistics Canada documentation.
The blood sugar value, measured using the marker HbA1c, which gives a mean value over a three-month period, dropped by five millimole per mole, a leap which can be considered justification for giving wider access to the treatment.

The researchers found that both male and female study participants who took a statin reduced their risk of a major cardiovascular event (heart attack, stroke, bypass surgery, cardiac death) by 21 percent and the overall risk of death by nine percent for every 1 millimole per liter (mmol/L) reduction in LDL cholesterol.
Moreover, in the earlier coal studies it was also determined, by gas-chromatographic measurements, that all the added high EDN solvent was completely absorbed into the macromolecular swollen coal structure, up to some specific limiting concentration (measured in millimole of high EDN solvent per gram of coal), with the specific concentration depending on the coal used.
