Baltic waters that might be more dangerous. The report holds that high
levels of toxic pollutants, which is mainly found in Baltic Sea fish,
could increase the risk of stroke, a new Swedish study show according
to Swedish television.

often, but it is primarily nursing young mothers who should be extra
careful because PCBs are passed on through breast milk," says Lars
Lind, professor of cardiovascular epidemiology at the University of
Uppsala, to Swedish television.
environmental toxin PCB and pesticide DDT, are both banned in Sweden,
but there are still a great portion stored in the food we eat. Among
other things, they are in full fat dairy products and especially fatty
fish from the Baltic Sea.
The new study, which Lars Lind, together with international colleagues
for many years have enabled them to followed nearly 1,000 people are
now showing that people with high levels of PCBs and DDT are at double
the risk of stroke.
"There is no way to bring down the values as they can only be broken down in the body, slowly but surely," says Lars Lind.
