Food, CVD and Heart Health.

Following on from the previous piece I wrote for Rhitrition on cholesterol, I have followed it up with this one on cardiovascular disease. I defined what CVD is, the types and risk factors before going into how food can have a positive or a negative effect on our health health.

The overall message?

- Aim for a balanced diet.

- Aim to increase our fibre intake and foods rick in polyphenols.

- Swap unsaturated fats in and saturated fats out.

- Reduce trans fats, salt and sugar intake.
