One of the most important organs in the body that we humans should never ever be playing with, or fail to be attentive to, is none other than the Heart. This is not just because it is the life source of human beings, it also because it is essential to other parts of the body.
A very fragile organ, the heart is one body organ that should be given total attention, and this can only be done by being mindful of the kind of life you live, as well as the kind of stuff that goes into your body. This is done by watching the foods you eat, and being careful of certain foods that affect the heart.
Below are 3 foods you should stop eating too much of if you want a healthy heart.
1. French fries
Fried foods are foods that are cooked over oil on high heat. These foods tend to soak up the oil before they cook properly, and they are usually fried with a lot of salt. The side effect of this is that they end up having a lot of cholesterol and fat, as well as a lot of fat.
High cholesterol and fat leads to weight gain and this can lead to a weak heart over time. Also, too much salt leads to high blood pressure, and one risk factor of high blood pressure is heart disease.
Pizza is one food that causes heart disease. This is because it has a lot of fat and cholesterol in it. Also, it has a lot of condiments in it that contains sodium, also making it a leading cause of high blood pressure, and high blood pressure leads to heart disease later on.
3. Soft Drinks
Soft drinks are not healthy for any body. Even athletes who lose a lot of body sugar and energy don't take them too regularly. However, it seems to be the staple drink for most third world countries, and this is not good, as it is loaded with a lot of sugar and cholesterol, and this can trigger the insulin in the body to increase drastically. This can lead to heart disease at the end.
