Reducing the toxic load from pollution will help keep your heart younger and healthier

Reducing the toxic load from pollution will help keep your heart younger and healthier. Researchers from Brigham Young University in Utah have discovered a connection between heart disease and air pollution that comes from cars, trucks, and factories. Their study results, published in Circulation in 2004, confirmed that exposure to the fine particulate matter emitted from these sources triggers a systemic inflammatory response that contributes to the risk of death from cardiovascular disease. Reduce exposure to airborne toxins by choosing routes with the least traffic and you may protect your heart.
