'Heart Drug Could Save Thousands'

'Heart Drugs Could Save Thousands'

Also contains the following [surprise, surprise...   :)  ]

"The researchers also examined whether giving patients vitamin supplements would have any positive effect. It did not.

There is a theory that vitamins A, C and E prevent the oxidation of fat in the walls of blood vessels - making it less likely that they will become clogged.

However, the research found no benefit at all from giving the so-called anti-oxidant vitamins to patients"

- Which inevitably makes one want to know what were the *amounts* and the *combinations* (if any) in which these antioxidants were administered... Anyone have the actual study?
