Scientists discover the main cause of sudden heart attack


The causes of sudden heart attack are exposure to nanoparticles [سيدتي] Heart attacks are affecting adults and children alike, and most people are unaware of their causes, but scientists from Yale University in the United States revealed that one of the main causes of sudden heart attack is exposure to nanoparticles, often found in polluted air.

Researchers in Augsburg, Germany, analyzed data for non-fatal cases of heart muscle obstruction in approximately six thousand patients, and the time of heart attacks was compared with rates of air pollution, taking into account other factors such as day of the week and socioeconomic status.

According to the Russian “Sputnik”, it became clear that molecules can cause heart defects in the first few hours of exposure to the body, as they penetrate blood and cells easily due to their small size, according to the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.

It is reported that these particles reach ultra-accurate sizes “100 nanometers” or less, and their main source is car exhaust emissions.

It is noteworthy that myocardial infarction or heart attack is the most common form of cardiovascular disease worldwide.
