It is not. If exposed to the chemicals used for performing those jobs for a long period, it can affect your health in various ways. Recent studies have shown that it ca

hs-CPR can predict metabolic syndrome

Higher and increased concentration of hs-CRP within normal range can predict the incidence of metabolic syndrome in healthy men AIMS: To determine whether hs-CRP level and interval change of hs-CRP could predict the development of metabolic abnormalities in healthy subjects in a longitudinal study. METHODS: A cohort of 3748 male who had normal hs-CRP level without evidence of any component of metabolic syndrome were studied. At each visit, hs-CRP level and metabolic abnormalities were measured. Interval change of hs-CRP for each subject was calculated. COX proportional hazard model and logistic regression analysis were used. RESULTS: Cumulative incidence and incidence density of metabolic sy
