If latest findings of researchers are to be believed then a new link has been discovered by the team between a type of chemical and risks of heart diseases.
The astonishing facts are that the chemical in reports is none other perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which is commonly present in various products like non-stick cookware, polishes, lubricants and food packaging etc.
Noticing that the increased levels of the acid in the blood can lead to several cardiovascular diseases and related illnesses, Australian experts have immediately urged caution.
Above are the findings of a recent study that was ran by researchers over 1216 heart patients to study the levels of the chemical in them. No other factors like age, sex, smoking, weight, and diabetes were considered while the researchers reviewed the health reports of all the patients.
The findings were published in the Archives of Internal Medicine writing that the chemicals present in drinking water and the air can also affect the people's health.
Further, it has been cleared by the authors from the West Virginia University School of Public Health that the results support the facts of health effects from perfluoroalkyl chemicals but no conclusions have been yet drawn that the chemicals actually triggered heart problems in patients.
