Enquête

Le TMAO, ou triméthylamine-N-oxyde, a été associé à un risque cardiovasculaire accru. Mais ce lien semble à nuancer lorsqu’on regarde l’ensemble des données existantes. Détails.

Le TMAO, pour triméthylamine-N-oxyde, est un composé qui se forme dans l’organisme après la consommation de certains aliments, comme la viande ou les œufs (1). La carnitine...
