FRESNO, California (KFSN) -- A common heart disease drug can cure chest pain and help lower heart rates, but what about combating racism?
A published Oxford University study says the drug -- propranolol -- made patients - less racially prejudiced.
Reportedly, a small group of people taking the drug were less racist than a group taking a placebo pill. Not everyone is convinced.
Dr. Karim Alkadhi said, "I think there's a lot of hullabaloo about it I think it's really early to make any real conclusion"
Dr. Ed Reitman said, "I wish there were a pill that worked that way but unfortunately that's not the case"
Doctors who reviewed the study say the drug lowers anxiety and makes patients feel calmer, making them appear to be less racially prejudiced.
