Revealed: The WORST food for your heart
Increases risk of a fatal heart attack
They say you are what you eat.
I don’t know about that… but what I do know is that your health is dependent on what you put into your body.
And study after study has tied a certain kind of food to increased risks of cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, depression, gastrointestinal disorders, and more.
Now a recent study has identified yet another risk:
An increased risk of a second heart attack or stroke… and 40 percent higher probability of dying from any cause at all.
What is this deadly food?
It’s not a single food, but a type of food: ultra-processed food.
Ultra-processed foods have only a few whole food ingredients, and five or more inexpensive, industrially processed ingredients.
In other words, they make up the majority of the items located in the center aisles of the grocery store.
It’s no secret that these foods are terrible for your health… but they do more than increase your risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes.
They’ve also been shown to increase your risk of cardiovascular disease and of dying of any cause at all.
A new study found that people with cardiovascular disease who consume the most ultra-processed foods have an increased risk of having a second heart attack, compared to those who eat less.
Specifically, they found that those who ate the most ultra-processed foods had a two-thirds increased risk of a second—often fatal—heart attack or stroke.
And their probably of dying of any cause at all during the study period was 40 percent higher.
That’s a BIG problem because in the US, nearly 60 percent of the average person’s diet is made up of these types of foods.
I don’t like those odds.
But I do like MY odds because I don’t eat this processed crap—and you shouldn’t either.
If you’re wondering if you’re making good food choices or not, check the label.
If the ingredient list is so long that you need bifocals to read it… chances are it’s a highly processed food that’s terrible for your health.
The BEST food choices don’t have a list of ingredients.
The food IS the ingredient.
