As the wife of a heart-attack survivor, I’m always trying to keep up with what the most recent science is regarding nutrition. Suffice it to say, this is not easy as there are a million different opinions out there and most of them can cite this study or that personal experience as proof. I try to stay pretty mainstream with what I follow, but it’s scary to wonder if you are doing the right thing or not.
However, that being said, most of what appears in this article regarding these ten foods seems to be pretty much agreed upon across the board.
If heart disease runs in your family, please stay on top of info like this. It’s so important to watch what we consume and I personally think most of us often eat mindlessly and really don’t give enough credence to the effect simple nutrition has on our bodies. My main advice that I now follow: EAT REAL FOOD I try to avoid any and all processed or convenience food. But read this article & others like it for yourself, and please – treat your bodies well. 🙂
The top 10 foods listed in this article are:
- Fast-food burgers
- Processed and cured meats
- Deep-fried foods
- Soft drinks and sugar-sweetened juices

But please, read the article & get the details – it’s not quite as cut-and-dry as listing the ten, you need to understand the nuances behind each one.
