Hostility & Antioxidants

New research, published in the January, 2008 American Journal of Epidemiology, suggests that certain heart-healthy antioxidants could lower the risk of heart disease associated with the hostile personality, so frequently linked to an increased risk of heart disease.

Epidemiological studies strongly suggest that hostile individuals are more likely to smoke, drink and suffer micronutrient deficiencies, which all affect antioxidant status.

Does this research suggest the possibility of a full-spectrum multiple becoming the first line of heart-health defense for hostile people?
