Bacterial Fats can Cause Heart Disease

Heart attacks result from a slow process of atherosclerosis which involves the hardening and clogging of the arteries with fatty substances called lipids. Immune cells that spot the lipids stick to the walls of blood vessels, scavenge lipids, and multiply. Fats that cause heart disease are not just from the diet. New evidence suggests that the bacteria in the mouth can also produce fats which can cause heart disease.
