Natural ways: Avoid Heart Disease
Heart disease is the most sadistic killer. Every year, tens of millions of people worldwide die from this disease and there are millions of people convicted as new carriers. Unfortunately, most people do not know that heart disease is preventable through diet and natural settings.
Changes in diet can reduce the risk of heart attack up to 81 percent.
The experts from Europe who joined in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) in recent years to study the pattern and nutrient intake in 10 European countries. The research also develop ways or strategies to reduce risk of heart and blood vessel disease.
According to researcher and author of Your dietitian Healthy Weight Loss Plan, John Phillip, the results of various research shows that heart disease can be formed since the beginning of one's life and later developed into a deadly threat when they grow up. The good news is the risk of heart disease can be controlled and avoided by making simple changes in lifestyle and diet person.
EPIC Research published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine suggests that a change in diet can reduce the risk of heart attack up to 81 percent. By setting the right diet, the risk of inflammation can be reduced and blood pressure under control.
The experts stressed four important factors that one can do in order to avoid the risk of heart disease:
1. Reduce foods containing refined carbohydrates, sugar, and grains.
Processed foods have now become the main menu every day. In fact, these foods contain simple carbohydrates that easily processed into glucose, causing blood sugar increase in a short time. This is the trigger of insulin resistance and cause a thickening of the endothelial lining of coronary vessels. It is recommended to gradually reduce your intake of types of bread, pasta, rice, sugary foods, and all foods made from wheat or corn.
2. Limit the Omega-6 vegetable oils.
Vegetable oil or vegetable oil is relatively stable at room temperature and used in nearly all the roasting and processing of food to add flavor and make it more durable.
