Scientists from Yale University in the United States have 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 on non-lethal cases of heart muscle blockage 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 the day of the week and the social and economic situation.
And according to what was reported by “Russian Sputnik” it turned out that the molecules can cause a heart defect in the first few hours of exposure to the body, as it penetrates the blood and cells easily because of its small size, according to the magazine “Environmental Health Perspectives.”
These particles reach ultra-fine sizes “100 nanometers” or less, and their main source is car exhaust emissions.
Myocardial infarction or heart attack is the most common form of cardiovascular disease worldwide.
