    Kokubo Y, Inamoto N, Tomoike H, Kamide K, Takiuchi S, Kawano Y, et al. Association of genetic polymorphisms of sodium-calcium exchanger 1 gene, NCX1, with hypertension in a Japanese general population. Hypertens Res. 2004;27:697-702 pubmed
    ..TC+TT: odds ratio=1.45; 95% confidence intervals: 1.04 to 2.02; p =0.03), respectively. Thus, our study suggests that NCX1 is one of the genes related to susceptibility to essential hypertension in the Japanese general population. ..

    ..We observed no decreased risks of incident stroke in men or women with higher dietary magnesium intakes. Higher dietary magnesium intake was associated with a reduced risk of CHD in Japanese men. ..

    ..Thus, our study suggests that these five genes were susceptibility genes for essential hypertension in this Japanese population. ..
