    Link Found Between Excess "Free Radicals," High Blood Pressure
    UCI research finds antioxidant vitamins E and C increase nitric oxide, curb
    hypertension

    Irvine, Calif., July 31, 2000 — A team of UC Irvine College of Medicine
    researchers has found that high blood pressure can be induced—and brought
    back to normal—by changing levels of highly reactive oxygen molecules called
    free radicals and nitric oxide, which currently is being studied for its role
    in cardiovascular disease and other functions in the body.
