Abstract

Universal drinking water and beverages containing moderate to high levels of magnesium (10-100. ppm) could potentially prevent 4.5. million heart disease and stroke deaths per year, worldwide. This potential is calculated with 2010 global mortality figures combined with a recent quantification of water-magnesium's inverse association with heart disease and stroke mortality. The modern processed food diet, low in magnesium and spreading globally, makes this well-researched potential of drinking-water magnesium worth serious consideration, especially in areas where insufficient dietary intake of magnesium is prevalent. © 2013 The Author.
