Study title and authors:
PCB-induced oxidative stress in endothelial cells: modulation by nutrients.

Hennig finds that polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) can damage the lining of blood vessels (endothelial dysfunction) which can lead to heart disease, and that polyunsaturated omega-6 oils can increase this damage.
Foods rich in polyunsaturated omega-6 oils include safflower oil (78%), sunflower oil (68%) and soybean oil (51%), all of which are main constituents of margarine.
