Crude oil from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster has been causing heart abnormalities in some large marine fish, according to research appearing Tuesday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
A new study from Stanford University and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has revealed that crude oil interferes with fish heart cells, resulting in a slowed heart rate, reduced cardiac contractility and irregular heartbeats that can lead to cardiac arrest and sudden cardiac death.
