Arteriosclerosis is one of the major health problems confronting people of middle and advanced age. The disorder, commonly called "hardening of the arteries", is a contributing factor in more deaths than any other ailment.
The profound alteration in the physical properties of arteries which comes about as a result of the sclerotic process suggests that equally important changes may take place in the chemical composition of the arterial tissue.
