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.
