Take diff. multi. &: No adult males should take iron supplements unless proven deficient. Iron is a pro-oxidant that increases risk of disease and most men get plenty from their diet. Change to a multivitamin without iron. Consider donating blood- periodically donating blood may reduce risk of acute heart attack up to 88%! See http://www.anh-usa.org/reduce-your-heart-risk/
