Homocysteine : Rare cases of genetic hyperhomocysteinemia can lead to early-aggressive vascular disease but outside of that, elevated homocysteine has not been established as a lead cut risk factor for increasing the risk of stroke or heart disease. Treating this with B vitamins has not panned out either (HOPE2 study, NORVIT Study). References
