Heart Disease: 15 Foods You Shouldn't Eat

Heart diseases most time are result of the unhealthy foods we eat. Heart Diseases are can be prevented by taken necessary precautions. Some of the precautions are discussed below;


Grilled chicken is not healthy for the heart. One 4-ounce serving of fried chicken with the skin on it has as much cholesterol as 11 strips of sizzling bacon. This can not good for the heart


Veggies may be a cornerstone of a blood-pressure-friendly diet, but not the ones that come out of a can. The preservatives and sauces that keep the vitamin-filled veggies company inside the container are packed with sodium. Look for “no salt added” or “low sodium” options and be sure to rinse your veggies thoroughly before digging in.


According to a recent survey, 48 percent of Americans are looking to cut back on sodium, however according to a Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics study, nearly half of Americans consume a sandwich every day one of the top source of salt in the American diet.

If you’re going to keep the stuff in your breakfast lineup, swap to a no-salt-added variety. Or, better yet, eat a container of Greek yogurt instead.
