A new study by McMaster University claims people eating a diet rich in meat and junk food are MORE likely to have heart attacks than people eating mostly fruits and vegetables.
The research appears in the journal Circulation. Reuters reports:
People who ate more fruits and vegetables had a 30 percent lower risk of heart attack compared to people who ate little or none of these foods, they found.
People eating a Western diet had a 35 percent greater risk of heart attack compared to people who consumed little or no fried foods and meat.
Not a shocker! The link between saturated fat and heart attack is WIDELY accepted. Luckily a PLANT-based diet has been shown to prevent and reserve heart disease.
But this guy had to learn the hard way. His butter-based diet nearly killed him!
