A recent study has unveiled that chemical Bisphenol-A (BPA), which is used in the production of kitchen containers, has been found to be associated with the diagnosis of chronic coronary artery stenosis.
The study was being carried out by a group of three different universities. The three universities were the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry (PCMD), the second one was University of Exeter and the last one was University of Cambridge.
In order to reach at the above given result, the study researchers assessed 591 people, who were part of an earlier study known as Genomics Coronary Artery Disease (MaGiCAD) study.
Lead researcher Professor David Melzer, who is Professor of Epidemiology at the PCMD, was of the view that in order to simplify the things, they divided the group in three forms. The first group was of severe, second group was of intermediate and the last group was of normal.
Assessment revealed that out of 591 people, 385 people were classified into the category of severe group and other 86 into intermediate and rest 120 were into normal category.
“Our latest study strengthens a growing body of work that suggests that BPA may be adding to known risk factors for heart disease”, said David.
