Use of candles and risk of cardiovascular and respiratory events in Danish cohort study
Denmark belongs to the countries in Europe where most candles are used, especially during the long winters. A study which was conducted by a team of independent scientists examined data of 6.757 participants of the Copenhagen Aging and Midlife Biobank cohort.

Interestingly, it was observed that frequent candle users were more physically active and had a higher socioeconomic status than non-users and those who used candles rarely.
