Government probes chelation-heart disease study

Denver Post, September 26, 2008
At least two people have died undergoing an experimental and controversial treatment, chelation, used for those with heart problems, although doctors say there is no known direct link between the deaths and the treatment. Officials are now investigating whether those participating in the treatment were properly informed of the risks associated with it. More than 1,500 heart attack survivors are involved in the research.
